Internships are a wonderful opportunity to set yourself apart and discover what a career in your field of study looks like. A simple four-week placement can help students form connections, meet industry professionals and even help to get a foot in the door towards a full time placement and dream career.
Internships also help students and recent graduates develop skills in problem solving, client relations, project and time management. Even if the internship may not fall under your preferred industry, it can offer you with a range of transferable skills, benefit you on career direction, and most importantly provide an opportunity to create a network of contacts.
The "Summer in the City" programme offers a way to get insight on how businesses work and what challenges they face, while applying your academic studies. The deadline to apply is 22 March 2020 with interviews taking place early April 2020. Placements to then be confirmed 24 April 2020. Students who are studying abroad may interview via telephone.
