Internship Opportunities 2019

As more companies join the program through September and October we will add the new opportunities, so please keep returning if you don't yet have an internship set up.

You can use these links or you can find your own internship opportunities. We will have to check and approve any internship proposals, to confirm they meet our general educational and administrative requirements.

Curriculum Vitae Needed

Increase your chances of securing the internship you want by submitting a great CV. Get your CV reviewed at one of the weekly drop in CV clinics, or sign in to MyCareer to make an appointment with your Careers Consultant Marielle Kelly for advice on making your application stand out. Visit the Careers and Advisory Service for more information.

Application Process

The application process varies a bit from company to company, but the general pattern is the same: you apply for an internship as if you were applying for a job. You may have to send your applications directly to the host company, or you may have to send them to us. There may be a specific deadline, or there may be a rolling programme of application. In any case, pay close attention to the relevant requirements.

Typically, promising candidates will be selected from the applications submitted, interviews or other similar events will be held and the successful candidates will be offered internships.
