Internship Host Companies

As an internship host company, your business can benefit greatly from the presence of a student intern whilst you give the intern a hands-on work experience opportunity.

Internship Information for Companies

An internship is a vocational work experience placement that gives a student practical industry experience relevant to their current or recent studies and their degree.

The aim of the internship is to give the student an opportunity to apply their university learning, develop their technical and soft skills and improve their employability.

As an internship host company, you, too, will benefit from the internship in a range of ways.

    Becoming a Host Company

    How the Internship Program Works

    • Tell us about the internship role you can host. The role is then structured into an internship program.

    • We then organise an interview between you and a potential student intern.

    • You assess if the student is suitable. And you decide if you take the student for an internship or not.

    • If you accept the intern, we’ll get the required internship documents done.

    • If you don’t want to accept the student following the interview, we will put another student forward for your consideration.

    Internship Host Company Responsibilities

    Host Companies
