Launch of Student Experience Internships

09 Apr 2014

The Directorate for the Student Experience has launched a new student internships programme for summer 2014.

Student Experience Internships

Most of the 160 internships in this pilot year will be based across the University and within its cultural assets. They are designed to help improve the employability of our students, and thanks to a University Prize and Scholarship fund, all the internships will be fully paid.

The scheme, managed by the Careers Service, is aimed at undergraduates: a small number of first-year students will undertake short, three-week internships, but the majority will be second year undergraduates in eight-week internships.

There are two types of internships:

  • Student Experience Internships - each academic School will have the opportunity to recruit four interns to support the student experience by working on employability and welcome week initiatives;
  • University Project Internships - these are ring-fenced for second year WP students and will include a variety of projects throughout the University. A University department which would like an intern would have to bid for one through a formal process. The closing date for project submissions is Wednesday, 16 April 2014.
