On CampUS Internships now open

Could you host a student to complete a work internship in your department?

Now in its eighth year, On CampUS Internships offers you the opportunity to benefit from the up-to-date skills and knowledge that a student can offer with the added incentive of up to 100 per cent funding to cover the cost of employing a student.

What do I need to know?

Internships can be based within faculties, academic departments, and professional services. Projects should appeal to our diverse student population and can utilise the specific academic knowledge and skills that our students possess.

Internships must be based within the department and should offer a secure and supportive work environment with on-the-job training and mentoring through regular reviews and feedback.

Internships can comprise of 50 to 100 hours to suit your needs. Internship length can be selected upon submission. Please bear in mind, students can only complete a maximum of 16 hours per week during term time.

On CampUS Internships are only open to certain students. We are specifically looking to engage students from underrepresented groups (widening participation students) and also students of international fee status. This is to ensure that our programme targets students who stand to gain the most from this experience.

What support would I receive?

The Careers Service will administer the registration and payment of the student as well as advertising and promoting your On CampUS Internship to students. We will also take on the responsibility to vet all applicants to ensure that they are either an international fee-paying student or a student that meets one of the widening participation flags in their UCAS application.

The team is also available to support you throughout this process, providing advice on putting together a proposal and working with the student throughout the internship.

How do I apply for funding?

On CampUS Internships are open now and will remain open until Wednesday 25 March at 5pm. If you would like to apply to take part, please complete our application form.
