Internships

With your support we can help to encourage students to undertake exciting and worthwhile internship and work experience placements without being inhibited by financial constraints. 

The global employability market is increasingly competitive and having real-world experience is vital. As well as their academic studies, it is crucial for students to experience commercial environments, develop a range of transferable skills and benefit from mentoring. Building networks of professional contacts can also support students in navigating their future career paths. 

Be it spending time in research laboratories, working within top Barristers' chambers, recording endangered butterfly species in Cuba, or educating communities in Third World countries, our bursaries provide life-changing experiences.

Learn more through our Careers Network, or give today to provide a life-changing opportunity.

Together we will offer the following internships

  • International: to enable international work experience with private, public and non-profit organisations around the world.
  • UK Professional: to help students gain work experience in their chosen area before they reach thier final year and make important graduate employment decisions.
  • Gateway: to support our A2B students, registered disabled, those leaving care, first generation of the family into higher education, in receipt of a grant or scholarship, lone parents and ethnic minorities.
  • Undergraduate Research Experience: to support the next generation of research students, enabling students to spend time within research environments and gain important skills.

The global employability market is increasingly competitive and having real-world experience is vital. We need to offer students access to a range of opportunities to experience commercial environments, develop professional and transferable skills, gain experiences, and benefit from mentoring. Your support is crucial.
