NCL Internships

NCL Internships provide businesses across the North East with the opportunity to utilise one of our talented students within a project based internship. We can facilitate the internship, providing all administrative support, so the student doesn't have to be employed by you and funding may be available through the Careers Service to subsidise part of the student bursary.

NCL Internships are designed to offer a cost effective, flexible solution to business needs, bringing a fresh perspective that will have measureable benefits to your organisation.

The internships are open to all current Newcastle University students, of all courses and stages, so there are a huge range of internships we can advertise. Previous projects include social media coordinator, web developer and laboratory assistant.

The Santander Universities Internship Programme

The Santander Universities Internship Programme provides small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) with funding of over £1500 to recruit a Newcastle University graduate.

To meet the National Living Wage, graduates working in the North East must be paid at least £306.26 per week and SMEs can receive funding of £153.13 per week for up to 10 weeks. In 2017-18 89% of Santander Internships resulted in further employment!

With both schemes we can offer a full recruitment service including advertising, shortlisting and interview support to ensure you find the right candidate.
