Learning Through Research Internships 2022 – call for proposals

10 Jan 2022

Careers Service programme provides students with an insight into the work of academic researchers – application deadline Thursday, 3 February

Following on from the successful launch of the research internships strand of the Student Experience Internship (SEI) programme in 2018, the Careers Service is pleased to announce that internship proposals are now being accepted for the Learning Through Research Internships programme for 2022.

Designed for non-final 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.

Additionally, these internships aim to have a high proportion of Widening Participation students (e.g. Black, Asian and Minority ethnic students, disabled students, students from low-income households) participating, helping this group of students in particular to gain an insight to a career that they may not normally have, nor consider.

Thanks to a merged endowment there is funding to pay the students for an eight week internship period during summer 2022. Students will also be supported through a weekly development programme of workshops organized by the Careers Service.

We are now seeking proposals for Learning Through Research Internships for next summer, aiming for the internships to start in June or July 2022.

To be considered for funding, please submit your proposals by Thursday, 3 February 2022.

To apply please contact Lewis Howells via for further details and a Learning Through Research Internship template for completion.
