Exclusive Internship opportunities

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.  Employers look for candidates with a global mindset - that is those with cultural awareness and an ability to work with colleagues from other countries.  They also look for adaptability and flexibility and undertaking an international experience can give you this.
