  • Overview

    This exciting opportunity, run in partnership with the Career Development Centre here at the University of Stirling, will give students opportunities to carry out four - week internships in a number of sectors in the Stirling area. These sectors include sports, environmental science, politics, charity / non - profit and marketing, though this list is subject to change and additional internship areas will be considered on a case-by- case basis.

    Students who choose this module will spend the whole four- week block in the internship placement. Students should be aware that the internship placement is full-time. Through this internship, students will develop an understanding of the UK labour market and the specific sector of their internship; develop their team working skills; and hone their written and oral communication skills. Students can expect to spend approximately 140 hours in their internship placement and an additional ten hours on associated classroom sessions, review days, writing reflective journals, and online tutorials run by the Career Development Centre. Assessment will take the form of a presentation given about your internship, completion of your journals and submission of a project report. Please see the inside back cover for more information.

    Important note: Students from outside of the EU/EEA/Switzerland taking this module must enrol full-time in ISS Block 1 (and take two modules) before being allowed to embark on the internship module. Students will also be required to obtain the appropriate UK visa known as a Tier 4 visa, the cost of which will be additional. Please also note the earlier application deadline.
