Work Experience - Host Information

Our highly motivated students can benefit your organisation with their skills, knowledge and unique perspectives through our placements, projects and internship opportunities. These programmes can also help to raise your organisational profile amongst the student community.


These offerings are especially useful for organisations with no formal internship or graduate scheme. Our internship and placement programmes can help to meet short-term project goals and act as a pipeline for exciting future talent at your organisation.

We offer a range of opportunities in which your organisation can engage and these can be found in the boxes below.
