An internship is a period of work experience carried out by the student to gain exposure to the working environment, these often take place in an industry which is related to the student’s area of study.

The internship will normally take place over the vacation period and can be as short as a week-long to 2 or 3 months. If you are interested in undertaking a placement as part of your course abroad for longer than 3 months, check out our work placements page.

We have found some internship providers for you to research and find an internship suited to your needs. If you have secured your own internship over the summer, you can notify the Student Mobility Team. A member of the Student Mobility Team will be in touch to provide you with further information on what is required to ensure your Internship is registered with us.
