Placements and Internships

Masters students recognise the importance of making connections outside the classroom. Internships provide students the opportunity to expand their skills, network with professionals and make an impact in their field. This webpage was designed to act as a starting place for students who are thinking about internships.

The University of Glasgow Careers Service hosts an internship hub which provides a list of UK-based opportunities.

Consortium partners actively seek internships for our students.  Any opportunities which become available are passed on to students and will be posted on this site.
