Graduate vacancies and schemes

Graduate schemes and graduate training programmes are offered by many large employers. They typically last a year, but some extend to 18 months or even two years. It's the defined time frame and structure that normally distinguishes a graduate scheme or programme from the wider class of 'graduate job', which is the catch all term for entry-level roles that require people with graduate level education.

Summer internships

A 4 to 12 week opportunity which would usually run between June and September, once a students has completed his/her exams. Internships offer students a practical experience in the industry relating to their field of study. 


A work placement is an opportunity for students to gain experience and develop new skills. It can also bring considerable benefits to businesses; offering a low-cost recruitment solution for up to 12 months, provide valuable professional development for staff and gain a fresh perspective from creative young people.

Here at Brunel University London, we have a wide range of courses in which placements are an integral part of the course. Brunel has a distinguished history as a pioneer in providing work experience within our degree programmes. We have strong, long-standing industry links and an excellent track record for placing students in various companies from large corporates to SMEs.

    Brunel's Summer Internship Scheme (BSIP)


    The Brunel Summer Internship Programme (BSIP) aims to increase the employability of students from under-represented backgrounds by providing them with internship experience in their first year. The programme is funded by the Office for Students meaning that students who are eligible for the scheme must meet a select criteria. All first year students who meet the criteria are able to register for the programme, from across all of the degree subjects we offer at Brunel University London.


    The programme aims to build on the student’s academic experience and employability skills. Students registered on the programme will be able to attend workshops and one-to-one meetings in order to develop their understanding on various employability related matters such as CV writing, how to succeed in interviews and business etiquette.


    This programme is funded by the university and each student will be provided with a bursary that equates to the London Living Wage for the 280 hours of work that they complete. There is no cost for employers to join this programme and all sectors are welcome.
