Internship & Insights
Work experience is an established path to securing a placement year and graduation. You can gain work experience through employer insight programmes primarily aimed at year 1 and 2 students and short term internships over summer primarily aimed at year 2 and 3 students.
Your university degree and extra-curricular activities will help equip you with some fantastic skills for employment after you graduate, but more and more employers are looking for proven skills through work experience.
Sign up to receive Opportunities & Updates and be the first to know about employer insights, short internships and key events.
Even if your course does not include a compulsory work placement, many work placement programmes can be completed during your Easter or Summer break.
Work experience opportunities will be advertised on the Employability Portal. Many employers seeking graduates also advertise work experience opportunities on their website under ‘careers’.
There is sometimes confusion around what is an internship? Let’s separate fact from fiction:
The benefits of completing an internship are boundless – they provide you with invaluable insights into organisations and help you gain employability skills and make your CV and job applications stand out to employers. No matter what year you are in it’s never too early or late to start thinking about applying for an internship.
