Overseas Internship Competition

The Overseas Internship Competition is open to all current students as well as graduates who have finished their degree in the same calendar year as their internship. Applicants will have sourced an internship abroad and be able to articulate the benefits of the experience upon their return. Internships that form part of a student's degree in their year abroad are not eligible for the competition.

Individuals wishing to apply should complete an application form detailing how their internship experience in a professional field outside of the UK has contributed to their personal and professional development. The Careers Service will also ask the employer to provide details of the internship.

The deadline for submitting application forms is Monday 30th September. A second deadline for those still completing their internships at the closing date is 31st January. The form for January's competition is available for download.

Winners will be decided once internships have been completed. Prizes will begin at 250, and winners will also receive a certificate. Please send entries to our Internship Manager.
