Funding for Graduate and Student Placements


Hosting a part-funded or free placement or internship gets you highly motivated students and graduates with up-to-date skills and knowledge to address specific problems or undertake a project that you might otherwise lack the time or expertise to tackle.

Whether you are looking to cut costs, improve efficiency, raise your organisation's profile or consider your strategic direction, student placement schemes can bring fresh ideas and knowledge to your business. The programmes are either part-funded or free, and are open to a range of different organisation types.
