This would be useful regardless of the subject you have studied.

Choosing Postgraduate Study

Access to Internships - A2I

Access to Internships (A2I) is a scheme to help recent Exeter graduates to secure a paid internship using information, support and funding provided by Santander Universities. We offer generous funding to employers keen to recruit our graduates which will help offset the cost of your paid internship. All subsidies are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. The funding application deadline is Friday the 1st of July 2016.


Don’t forget you can still access a wide range of graduate level vacancies through My Career Zone. Just ensure your My Career Zone log in is up to date so that you are able to keep up to date on which roles are currently being advertised. We currently have well over 500 graduate level roles ‘live’ on our system.

Keep in touch

We'll be contacting you around 6 months after graduation to ask you to complete the Destination of Leavers From Higher Education (DLHE) survey to find out what you've been doing since you left us. We'd really appreciate you filling this in as this information is important to the University and to prospective students researching their options.  More information about the DLHE survey can be found here.
