Want to improve your future employability? Want to get relevant, paid work experience at a time convenient for you? If so, then the UEA Internship Programme is here for you!

The UEA Internship Programme helps you increase your workplace confidence, develop new skills, and make your CV stand out from the rest. If you want to challenge yourself and apply your skillset to exciting and innovative live projects in a range of sectors, then why not undertake an internship through UEA? The programme comes highly recommended by more than 96% of former interns!

For current students our programme offers you the opportunity to secure paid part-time opportunities while you study, as well as part-time and full-time opportunities during the holiday periods.

For graduates (for up to three years after graduation) internships can last between four weeks and a year and could be full or part-time, meaning that there will be a time frame to suit you.

Internships are primarily based in East Anglian organisations or at UEA itself, but we are increasingly offering opportunities further afield, cementing ourselves as a flexible resource for students and graduates wherever they're based.
