Leeds Internship Programme

Opportunities for University of Leeds Undergraduates

Are you interested in securing an internship or work placement during your time at Leeds?

The Leeds Internship Programme works with local Small and Medium sized Enterprises (SMEs), charities and multi-national organisations to advertise paid opportunities, exclusively for University of Leeds students. We also work with University departments advertising on campus opportunities, meaning you could stay in Leeds for your internship or placement year.

As part of the programme interns get involved in many exciting projects while gaining new skills, experience and offering support that organisations find invaluable. Previous students have managed social media and marketing activities, designed websites, completed research into the effectiveness of services and many have been offered further work experience as a result of their internship. 

Our intern is still doing amazing and we have offered him a permanent contract of one day per week to continue work during his final year.
