Launch of Research Internships for Undergraduate Students
16 Mar 2018
Following on from the success of the Student Experience Internship (SEI) programme, the Careers Service is launching a new internship strand; Research Internships
Designed for second year undergraduates, the objective of the Research Internships is to provide students with an insight into the work of academic researchers plus an informed understanding of some of the key issues shaping contemporary research. The aim is to have at least a 25% WP student participation rate, helping this group of students in particular to access a career insight that they may not normally have, nor consider.
Thanks to a merged endowment fund students undertaking the Research Internships will receive payment for up to eight weeks across the summer vacation. Plus the participating students will be supported through the summer via a weekly development programme of workshops.
We are now seeking appropriate Research Internships for this summer, aiming for the internships to start in June or July 2018. If you have recently been awarded funding for a research project, whether it is laboratory or desk based and would welcome some additional researcher support over the summer vacation, we would very much like to hear from you.
Please contact Anne Milligan or telephone 0161 275 4948 for further details and a Research Internship template for completion.
