You can use these links or you can find your own possible opportunities. We will have to check and approve any internship proposals, to see that they can conform to our general educational and administrative requirements.

Curriculum Vitae Needed

You'll need a good, well-written CV. The Careers Advisory Service is available to assist you with CV preparation and mock interviews. Visit the Careers and Advisory Service for more information. Slides on CV preparation are available here. They are a valuable source of ideas, suggestions and information about writing high-quality CVs.

Application Process

The application process varies a bit from company to company, but the general pattern is the same: you apply for an internship as if you were applying for a job. You may have to send your applications directly to the host company, or you may have to send them to us. There may be a specific deadline, or there may be a rolling programme of application. In any case, pay close attention to the relevant requirements.

Typically, promising candidates will be selected from the applications submitted, interviews or other similar events will be held and the successful candidates will be offered internships.
