Leeds Internship Programme

Opportunities for University of Leeds Undergraduates and Graduates

Interested in securing an internship or placement year whilst studying at Leeds? The Leeds Internship Programme works with local Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs), charities and multi-national organisations to advertise PAID opportunities to University of Leeds students and graduates. We also work with University departments to advertise on campus opportunities meaning that you can stay in Leeds for the duration of your internship or placement year.

The Leeds Internship Programme removes the scariest step of moving into the real world; and offers great opportunities for putting your University learning into a professional context.
