Supported Internships Programme
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. We can also help you access high-level research and analytical skills and expertise through our part-time Internship programme for current PhD students.
Please note that the Employ.ed in an SME programme has been paused for the academic year 2020/21.
Hiring international students
It may be easier than you think to apply for a visa for one of our international graduates.
Most University of Edinburgh students are not required to undertake 6 - 12 month placements as part of their course. However, the School of Engineering and School of Chemistry do offer some placement opportunities for their students.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you any further enquiries about placements.

You can also promote your vacancy free of charge at all other Scottish Universities.
