What is an internship?

An internship is a period of work experience offered by an employer to give exposure to the working environment, often within a specific industry, which relates to your field of study. Internships can be as short as a week or as long as 12 months. 

We offer our own internship scheme exclusively to our own graduates, see 'Huddersfield Graduate Programme' and 'Summer Internships Programme' below.
