Internship Programme

Internships

To meet the demands of modern business, Kingston's business students now take three year degrees geared to enhancing their work readiness.

We are looking for more organisations to take part in our innovative programme. We would welcome your organisation's participation in offering a business student valuable experience. Internships start in January 2018 and run for six to nine months, after four terms of skills training and academic learning.

In offering an internship your organisation will be in great company.  Kingston University's previous internship providers include Airbus, Avios, G4S, Health Insight, Marks and Spencer, Morgan Stanley, Telefonica O2 and Walt Disney. We regularly receive excellent feedback from these companies and many go on to offer permanent positions to our students.

We are looking for internship organisations of all sizes, throughout the private, public and voluntary sectors. Whether you are a provider of business services, a large multinational, or an entrepreneurial company, we believe you will benefit from becoming one of our work placement providers.

Advantages for your organisation

By joining our internship programme you will:

  • Gain workers who are prepared: Our students will be ready to apply their practical learning and critical understanding to the real world of work.
  • Gain workers who are enthusiastic: Our students will bring their skills, knowledge and enthusiasm to their internships and be eager to work in roles that complement their degrees.
  • Gain workers with professional qualifications: Many of our students will be members of organisations such as the Chartered Management Institute, Chartered Institute of Marketing or Association of Chartered Accountants. They may be on the path towards qualifications from these organisations and many will be studying for a PRINCE2 project management qualification.
  • Gain workers from diverse backgrounds: Kingston Business School students come from a wide range of backgrounds and countries, fully reflecting the society in which your organisation operates.
  • Gain potential future employees:  You will gain access to talented, experienced and trained potential employees.
