Careers & Internships

An internship provides students with exposure to the demands of specific jobs in specific sectors and allows students to learn from professionals in their chosen field.

The practical skills and experience that students gain by carrying out an internship not only provide a taste of what it would be like to work in a given sector, but it also greatly increases a student’s employability in an ever-competitive job market.
