2013 UCL Advances Internship Programme

Who is it for?
programme is open to any London micro, small or medium enterprise with less
than 250 employees (including start ups, third sector and social enterprises) and
any level UCL student (or very recent graduate).
Students get paid for worthwhile work experience (£250 per week tax free) which will aid professional development, enhance their CV and could possibly lead on to a permanent job.
Businesses get a high calibre student or graduate to work with them, free of charge for 8 weeks, who could possibly turn out to be a future employee! This programme is one of a range of enterprise support services offered by UCL Advances designed to aid growth and development.
