Internships should offer highly structured, graduate-level work and provide a useful insight into your organisation. They are valuable for both students and employers. University of Edinburgh students undertake internships during vacation periods, or part-time during semester.

The Careers Service runs a variety of internship programmes to support employers. In partnership with the Santander Universities Internship Scheme, we have some funding and support available for SMEs and Third Sector organisations who are looking to recruit University of Edinburgh students and graduates.

Most University of Edinburgh students are not required to undertake 6 - 12 month placements as part of their course.  Contact the Employer Team if you have an enquiry about placements for specific degree disciplines.

Advertising voluntary roles in Edinburgh

If you have voluntary roles based in Edinburgh, you can advertise through the Students' Association site,  Edinburgh University Students' Association volunteering.

The Students' Association volunteering  department offers students the opportunity to register their area of interest and where possible match that with a relevant opportunity or organisation.

Voluntary roles outside of Edinburgh are advertised on MyCareerHub.

You can also share and post your vacancy to other Scottish Universities. More details on how to do so can be found on the AGCAS Scotland website.
