Internships and Insight days

Larger graduate recruiters usually offer structured summer internships and are increasingly offering insight days.

Insight days are usually aimed at first year students and provide a fantastic opportunity to get an insight into a particular company or sector. 

We have identified a number of opportunities targetting first year undergraduates, they can be found here on our vacancy system. We've also added a vacancy tag 'First Year Opportunities' on our vacancy system within the advanced search function to help make it easier for you to identify these opportunities.

Summer internships typically last between 6-12 weeks.  These are usually aimed at penultimate year students but some recruiters accept applications from first years and graduates. Recruiters for summer internships (particularly the more competitive ones) may begin accepting applications up to a year in advance, so do your research and apply early.  If you're looking for opportunites visit the finding a job section of our website.

The Careers Centre offers a number of exclusive internship and placement opportunities via the Leeds Internship Programme.
