Tap into the flexible and specialist skills of our students to bolster your business.

An internship is a paid period of work experience. It lets your business hire a student or graduate that has access to knowledge and skills that you wouldn't find elsewhere. Best of all, we provide a fully managed recruitment process to make sure you get the right candidate.

Our internships are a proven success, with over 90% of our employers choosing to take their interns on as full-time employees.

Funding is available for our internships where you can receive 50% off your recruitment costs, up to a maximum of £3,000.

We have three very successful models that we use to deliver our internships:

Virtual internships 

Virtual internships are a great way for employers from all around the country to tap into high-calibre talent and skills at Staffordshire University. Not bound by the location of your office and geographical proximity to university, virtual interns can deliver tasks and projects for your business remotely through digital means.

Our digitally savvy students and graduates are equipped with the right digital and technical skills to work on projects in marketing, digital design, software engineering, data and so on.  

Making virtual internships work for your businesses:

Some important things to consider when hiring an intern/placement student are:

Graduate internships 

A graduate level position where a graduate works full-time for at least 12 weeks. After this period the employer has the option to take the candidate on permanently.

Student internships 

A part time position that is suitable for a current student working between 10 to 20 hours a week for at least 12 weeks. This position should relate to their area of study.
