Employers guide to internships

A Richmondinternship is a supervised, work-based learning placement that, combined with reflective, academic study, enables students to apply theoretical knowledge in your workplace and to develop employability skills in the process.

Available to Junior or Senior (3rd or 4th year) undergraduate students in the Fall, Spring and Summer semesters and postgraduate students dependent on their course. Internships usually last for 6-12 weeks.

During their placement, we ask that students receive the support of a nominated supervisor in the workplace, these students will also receive the guidance and mentorship of a member of the university鈥檚 academic team. The programme has been designed to enable both your business and the student to gain benefit and to have sufficient time to work on valuable and constructive projects.

The students

Students at Richmondare bright, motivated and eager to learn. Selected on the basis of their strong academic record and their personal qualities, Richmondinterns are also familiar with the mainstream computer programs and many of them are multi-lingual.
As the programme works mainly with students who are close to completing their degrees, the majority of interns are knowledgeable about their specialist area and therefore able to make a meaningful contribution to an organisation鈥檚 work.

Being more mature also means that students on the programme are more focused on their careers and on creating opportunities to broaden their connections.

Visas

As the internship is a credit-bearing academic course, students on the programme do not require a full work visa.聽 All students on a UK Student Route visa are legally permitted to complete a full-time, work-related course, as long as it counts towards their academic studies. A copy of the student鈥檚 passport and visa can be provided for your records upon request.
