Supported Internships Programme

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.
