Internship Projects 2024

Our internship projects running from spring 2024 will investigate student-led ideas in three key themes. You can read about each of these themes in the pull-down menus below.

The call for project proposals will be circulated to staff via Faculties and Heads of Service, and interested colleagues can contact us with questions on

We expect the recruitment advert for students interested in applying to be an intern on one of our strategic projects will open in March 2024. More details will follow here. 

Student engagement and community is key to fostering a positive university experience. Understanding different experiences students have will move the university forwards in a positive direction. Projects in this area might facilitate student connections and community or evaluate feedback mechanisms so we can be more effective in acting on feedback

We are always looking for ways to improve academic support for students. We currently have a significant project underway considering different elements of academic assessments and how we can better support effective student learning and respond to feedback. You might be involved taking forwards strands of this project or scoping out other projects in relation to academic support such as academic tutoring. 

Understanding support available, where to find this and accessing information quickly and easily has been identified as a priority for the student experience. Working in this area you might help with the communication and branding of key pieces of work to ensure they are easily accessible and helpful for students.  

Funding Opportunities for Students 2024

In addition to our three internship projects, we also have an open fund available to student co-created proposals for projects against one of the themes above. 

The window for submitting proposals is now open, and will close at 5pm on Monday 18th March 2024. Please use the link to our registration form on the right panel of this page to submit a project proposal. 

Projects are able to bid for up to a maximum of £2,000, which should be used to reimburse student hours worked towards the project. Further guidance about how to structure your project and write your proposal application accordingly is available on our funding page
