As part of our commitment to help our students to develop essential employability skills and progress to graduate level jobs, we have obtained funding to offer a number of paid internships/work experience to our first year Widening Participation students.


You will be paid a bursary for 8 weeks at 35 hours per week (or any combination totalling 280 hours) by the University.

The bursary will be in excess of the National Minimum Wage and paid during your internship which will take place between June and the middle of September 2019.

What is Widening Participation? 

Widening Participation is a government-funded initiative to increase the number of students from under-represented groups participating in higher education. In order to ensure your progression, retention and success the University’s Widening Participation team delivers a number of initiatives to support you. This short term summer internship will build on your academic experience and employability skills.
