Internships and consultancy work for BASc Arts & Sciences students

Develop and promote internship opportunities for this unique cohort of students. Shortlisting services are available and there are opportunities for funded internships for charities, community organisations and not for profit organisations, for up to 30 days over the summer period.

Knowledge Economy Student Consultancy Project: Do you have a business problem that would benefit from a consultancy style project? As part of a core final year module, small teams of BASc students are paired with organisations to produce a full report and presentation on your business issue. Successful previous projects have included producing a marketing plan, product development, creation of a social media strategy, research or app design for example. The programme runs between September and January each year. At the end of the programme, the students will present their findings and you will receive a report for you to keep and use to advance your business. This is open to organisations of all sizes.
