Summer Experience

Can you offer an internship opportunity to a future University of Bradford Graduate?

Do you have a small project that a student can support you with?

Summer Experience is an internship programme that offers businesses the opportunity to recruit an enthusiastic undergraduate student from the University of Bradford for a six-week project-based internship between the end of May and early September 2021 in a cost-effective way.

This popular programme is designed to provide students with work experience where they can gain confidence in the workplace and develop all important employability skills.

Students will receive a salary of £327 per week, and this year some funding is available to subsidise the cost for SMEs with suitable projects.

Costs for a 6-week internship are therefore:
• £985 for an SME (less than 250 employees) with 50% funded
• £1970 for large organisations (250+ employees)

The University’s Employer and Placement Services Team can support you in drafting an Internship Brief and will advertise your opportunity to first and second year students.

The team will support the initial recruitment and selection process and the University also provides the contracting and payroll services at no additional cost.

Furthermore, businesses and interns will be invited to a Summer Experience celebration event. The event is a fun way to recognise the hard work providers and students put into their internships and celebrate the inspiring stories behind them.
