Our students can offer businesses an excellent opportunity to address a skill or resource shortage by benefiting from up-to-date scientific skills and knowledge. Your business could use an internship to help cover during busy periods, trial new roles or research a new idea.
In addition to their subject specific knowledge, academic study teaches our students:
- Problem solving
- Analysis and critical reflection
- Oral and written communications
- Negotiation and influence
All of our students are keen to learn and improve their employability through real-world experience; we prepare each one through a specially designed workplace course prior to starting an internship. Find out how other businesses benefited through our case studies.
Our Student Employability Manager Pam Pickles runs the Science and Technology Internships Programme and is your first point of contact to discuss your needs and find out about funding opportunities.
Pam provides support and guidance throughout the whole process, from advice on funding options, help with creating a job description, posting the advert, arranging interviews and guidance on internship selection, to monitoring and reviewing the internship to ensure a positive experience for both parties.
We are currently seeking full time summer internship opportunities for students during July-September 2017; we recommend you register your interest online by the end of January 2017 to enable us to recruit the right student for you.
