Our mutually beneficial Student Internships Our mutually beneficial Student Internships

The UEA Internship Programme provides you with a flexible and effective way of linking University students with your organisation. Our project-based internships over the Summer can help you spot future talent, fill a skills gap or get to that project you’ve been meaning to complete.

Summer Internship Event

We have designed the programme to make it as easy as possible for you. We create and advertise your opportunity on your behalf in January and February and arrange your interviews which take place at our Summer Recruitment Event in March.

Summer Internship Recruitment Event

One of the best parts is we take the intern on for you so that it’s as straight-forward as possible for you. We draw up the contract, run payroll, support HR and help with any queries you have throughout the process. All you need to do is provide us with some information on your project and pay an invoice.

Our Summer Internships are usually 4-10 weeks long, and can be full or part-time. We regularly fill internships in areas as diverse as Marketing, Social Media, Business Development, IT, Research and many more. If you’d like to attend the Recruitment Event, we will need all opportunities by the end of January, but you are more likely to attract the keenest students if you can get them to us earlier than this.

We can of course help you out throughout the year if this suits your recruitment timeline better. Do get in touch to discuss your business needs.


  • Example cost for a six week, full-time internship = circa £1,787 + VAT
