Newcastle Work Experience (NWE) is a work internship scheme that allows North east businesses to utilise the skills of our students in a project-based work internship.

Our programme includes both undergraduate and postgraduate students and is designed to:

  • have measurable benefits for your organisation
  • offer a cost-effective and flexible solution to business needs
  • bring fresh perspective and new ideas to your organisation

We currently run two distinct NWE schemes: a term-time and a summer scheme.

In our term-time programme students undertake 100 hours work experience over a flexible period of three to four months.


The cost for NWE term-time programme is £400 (plus VAT) per student.

The costs for the NWE summer programme are as follows:
