Internships offer you a hands-on opportunity to work in your desired field, giving you the chance to apply your academic knowledge in real-world situations whilst building valuable experience to take beyond your degree.
Relevant work experience while you are at university is crucial to achieving a good graduate job. You may find that following your internship you are included in publications or even offered a graduate role.
In Physics, we have a number of paid and voluntary Internships each year that spread across our research groups. These internships allow the successful candidates to use state-of-the-art facilities, integrate with research groups and learn about on-going experiments. You will also learn the art of presenting results and writing up documentation. Our internships are only open to current Physics students.
