This internship is being recruited through the Student Campus Partnership (SCP) scheme and open to University of Exeter students who will continue to be students in the academic year 2020-2021 i.e. you are not currently in your final year of study.

As the SCP roles are for 12 months, if you are a postgraduate student completing your course in September 2020 you will not be eligible to apply for the SCP, but you may be eligible to apply for a GBP (see below).

If you are a current UG student graduating this summer and have applied and been accepted onto a PG degree at Exeter , you can also apply for this SCP, to work a maximum of 6hrs a week once term begins.

Unfortunately this SCP cannot be used as a full-time Year in Industry student placement.

 

GBP 5162: Graduate Digital Learning Developer

This internship is being recruited through the Graduate Business Partnership (GBP) scheme and open to University of Exeter finalists and recent graduates (within the last 3 years).

As the GBP roles are for 12 months, if you are an international final year undergraduate student, international final year postgraduate student or international recent graduate, you will not be eligible to apply for the GBP, if you need the university to sponsor your visa, as these roles do not meet visa requirements. If you do not need sponsorship you can apply for this role.

If you are a Home or EU final year postgraduate student you can apply for this GBP role and start your contract working 6 hours a week through eclaims payroll until you 'hand in' your final piece of work (usually at the end of August, beginning of September) when your contract can then be increased to full-time hours, paid through the university's main payroll, until July 2021 when all GBP contracts will end.

However, the work will need to be undertaken so any changes in the agreed working pattern can only take place with the consent of your line manager.

Is the start date set in stone?

Yes, all interns are expected to start their training week on Mon 29th June and then start working from Monday 6th July.

Can I apply for an SCP if I am about to graduate but will be starting a new degree at Exeter in the autumn
