What is Forage?

Forage is a free, open access, virtual platform which has been designed for students looking to obtain practical work experience through company endorsed programmes.

What do the projects involve?

Through your participation in a virtual experience programme, you'll undertake hypothetical tasks that very closely mirror the sort of work you'd do as an intern or a graduate employee at the organisation. It's a unique opportunity for you to try out a career at your own pace and in your own time, from the comfort of home.

Think calling clients, emailing partners and creating PowerPoint decks for your team. It's focussed on giving you a true taste of life at work.

What are the benefits? 

  • Sample what real-life work can be like
  • Boost your CV
  • Gain critical work-ready skills
  • Experience what work is like at innovative and influential companies
  • All programmes are free of charge for UoS students
  • Complete in the comfort of your own home at your own pace
  • You could potentially be recognised by recruiters at top companies on the InsideSherpa platform

How can you take part?

Getting started is really simple. It takes about 30 seconds to complete the registration process and from there you can enrol into any of the virtual experience programmes on offer. If you have further questions, please check out the Forage website prior to registering.
