EY UP! - Enhance Your University Programme!

EY UP! logo. Enhance Your University Programme. Look beyond the lecture hall and gain new skills.

As part of our work, the Crick Centre runs the EY UP! Scheme.  EY UP! stands for ‘Enhance Your University Programme!’.

The ‘EY UP!’ scheme offers opportunities for students to gain new career skills, visit and meet new people and interesting organisations, engage in departmental research and undertake public engagement and outreach activities.

Over the next year, we will be promoting a range of different opportunities in the departmental newsletter. See below for a list of the brilliant opportunities currently on offer in November:

  • A film club
  • Internships with the UN
  • Summer Policy Internships with the Civil Service
    • Are you interested in applying for a placement or graduate role in the Civil Service and want to stay in the North? Come along to a panel event we'll be hosting on 21 November, 5pm, Diamond Lecture Theatre 8. At this event you will hear from Policy professionals, Economists and Researchers who all work in the Civil Service in the North. They will tell you about their profession, how they got to their position and how you can set yourself apart when applying for roles in the Civil Service. University of Sheffield students who have completed a placement in the Civil Service in Sheffield will also be at the event to share their experiences with you and answer any questions you have. You will also find out more about the 10 Paid Summer Policy Internships you can apply for with the Civil Service and the University of Sheffield.
