Past students' experiences

“This Micro Internship not only gave me the opportunity to put the skills I currently have -- such as research, time-management and responsibility -- to practice, but it also enabled me to develop and refine those skills for the better. It also certainly provided me with the valuable work experience I need to enhance my CV/resume.”

“My communication skills have also increased highly as well, I was in constant communication with the people at my micro-internship so that I could make sure the project was fit for their requirements.”
