If you are not certain about what career path you want to follow, an extended internship or 'sandwich year' can be an excellent way to help you understand your options and make decisions about your future.
Students studying BSc or MSci Physics with Professional Experience have the option to include a one-year paid Professional Experience internship within their degree programme.
The Professional Experience degree programmes are identical to the BSc and MSci Physics routes except for the addition of the internship year.
You would complete your paid internship during the third year of your degree programme (or fourth for MSci), returning to Queen Mary for your final year of study.
Yobota values its links with universities; we place university interns directly into our teams, train the up and give them real work to do. Our training can take up over half of a summer internship, therefore Yobota prefers year-long placements that are much more productive for both the student and the company.— John Morris, Software Architect, Yobota (Financial technology)
