After we receive your application form we'll advertise the role to the suitable students and forward their CV and Cover Letter for you to complete the shortlisting and arrange an interview. Like with any interview process, we cannot guarantee that there will be a suitable candidate for your role or project.
Placements are not funded by the University but can be voluntary. If travel costs are incurred for the placement, we expect these to be covered by the company.
Interns can be based at your premises or at home.
The aim of the placement or project is to provide practical experience for our students appropriate to the level of the skills they are developing and aligned to their course of study. The students produce a reflective assignment based on a work diary and log as part of their assessment.
