An internship is an opportunity for 3rd year students to experience a professional workplace within a unit of study. The placement is a combination observation, completing tasks and practical application of theory learnt through the student’s course.
An internship is not simply "work experience" - previous study in the relevant discipline is required for the placement. Each placement is carefully and individually planned with staff within the Faculty, and overseen by a dedicated academic supervisor. The internship culminates with a written report, which is combined with specific tasks monitored by a supervisor in the workplace.
At the conclusion of an internship, the student will have acquired new skills and have a broader knowledge base, which will benefit their future career pursuits. Students will gain important personal skills such as flexibility, awareness, maturity, tolerance and other specific workplace skills.
These opportunities provide graduates with a significant competitive edge in the job market.
