The University Internship Programme 2018 – Open For Applications

Applications are now invited for projects which give students experience of working with staff on real research and knowledge exchange projects with high quality outcomes.
Academics are invited to apply for a CCCU intern to work with them on a relevant and clearly defined project, creating additional capacity to carry out RKE activity in areas that are likely to result in tangible outputs.

Proposals are welcomed from all disciplines and research areas and should demonstrate (where applicable) how external partners will be engaged through the design, delivery, and dissemination of the project.   The Internships will take place between May and August 2018 for up to 200 hours maximum.

Whilst internships are normally co-funded by central funds and school resources, 100% central funding will be considered. Applicants should not be deterred therefore, if school funds are limited.

Further details regarding the flexible duration and funding of the internships can be found on the application form.

Closing date: 9th February 2018
Application forms and details are available via the webpage or email and we will send you a form.
