Gain experience in the work place

An internship is a great way to enhance your CV or resume. And, gain real world experience of the industry you want to work in.

You’ll be able to network with local businesses and meet new people outside of university life. You’ll also gain insight into what it's really like to work in your chosen industry.

It's not just your employability you’ll be enhancing, you’ll also gain confidence and discover more about what you want out of your career.
