Learning Through Research Internships 2019

07 Dec 2018

Funding available for student research projects

Following on from the successful launch of the research internships strand of the Student Experience Internship (SEI) programme this year, the Careers Service is pleased to announce that internship proposals are now being accepted for the Learning Through Research Internships programme for 2019.

Designed for second year undergraduates, the objective of the Learning Through 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 a high proportion of Widening Participation students participating, 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 there is funding to pay the students during the eight weeks of the summer internship, plus they will be supported through a weekly development programme of workshops.

We are now seeking proposals for Learning Through Research Internships for next summer, aiming for the internships to start in June or July 2019.  To be considered for funding the proposals are to be submitted by Friday 25th January 2019.  If you are leading a research project and would welcome some additional researcher support over the summer vacation, we would very much like to hear from you.
