Internship opportunities exclusive to the University of Birmingham, sourced for you by Careers Network.
My internship with Sony was a fantastic experience, which gave me an insight into the industry which I will go into after I complete my degree, as well as helping me gain additional knowledge which I have used to help me write my dissertation! On top of this I believe that having the internship on my CV was key to me securing a graduate job offer with Deloitte. - Ashleigh Lloyd

Internship and work experience opportunities
Studying and working abroad, whether for a whole year, your summer vacation or even a couple of weeks can be an extremely enriching and rewarding experience.

They also look for adaptability and flexibility and undertaking an international experience can give you this.
