Careers and Enterprise: QInterns

Internships for QMUL students and recent graduates.

What are QInterns?

QInterns work with companies to develop paid work experience opportunities for QMUL students and recent graduates. Students will be able to develop skills for their CV through practical work-based placements and gain insight into industry. Specific skills developed will depend on the internship.

How will this help you progress your career journey?

An internship is great for those looking to acquire experience, allowing you to develop sought after skills and experiences. If you are exploring your career options, a paid full or part time internship can also allow you to test out or investigate a particular career area. You might also find an internship useful if you are looking to show you skills and experience, as you will get more insight into an employer’s perspective, which can help you to make more effective job applications in the future.

Who can take part?

At the moment, QInterns is only available to students studying in the following schools: the School of Mathematical Sciences, the School of Biological & Behavioural Sciences, and all schools within the Humanities and Social Sciences faculty.

If you are a student in one of the schools above, look out for emails throughout the year advertising live vacancies. These will arrive to the email address you supplied on enrolment. Application for an internship will be by CV with a covering letter, and candidates will be asked to undertake an interview.

We encourage you to book an appointment with Careers & Enterprise to get help with your CV and interview skills before you apply. If you have any questions about this or other programmes, then please contact us at
