Internships are being sought for students studying a range of technical subjects at Lancaster University – such as chemistry, computing and communications, cyber-security, engineering, environmental science, maths and statistics, physics, and psychology.
Santander is helping 35 SMEs access final year students by funding 50% of the cost of an internship, which can be 3 months full time or 6 months part-time. This provides the equivalent of 11 weeks work at a cost of £1,800+VAT. You may have one of the students or alumni in place already that you want to continue to support, or the internship programme at Lancaster University can help recruit appropriate students. Interns have worked in a wide variety of roles including programmers, chemists, web designers, research consultants, ecologists, engineers, and data analysts.
Experts at the university work with host companies to ensure the projects meet specific business needs. The university would particularly welcome interest from businesses that have opportunities for students who could work within their companies during the summer months between July and September 2016, though part-time positions throughout the year are also welcome.
