In some cases students are able to take an internship during their degree. This can add a valuable dimension to their studies; helping put into practice the theory learnt, offering the opportunity of some relevant work experience and giving the student a distinctive edge in the job market upon graduation. An increasing number of our undergraduate and postgraduate degrees have an embedded internship program, meaning it is a requirement of the degree that an internship is completed. See below for the list of degrees offered by the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences that offer an embedded internship program. If a student chooses a degree does not have an internship requirement, but is interested in undertaking one, they should contact the degree director in the first instance, and also the University’s Careers Centre to discuss options.
The following Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences undergraduate and postgraduate degrees have embedded internship programs, as well as a dedicated internship officer to help arrange the students work placement. Click on the relevant link to find out more information about the program:
