In partnership with Santander Universities, Imperial College London Careers Service is able to offer funding to support the engagement of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with undergraduate students through paid project based internships. The programme supports SMEs to provide internship opportunities to undergraduate students over the summer vacation (July – September) by contributing to their training allowance. 

This internship programme provides you with access to our innovative talent and the opportunity to get a different perspective on your projects. Our students will in turn gain invaluable insights into a wide range of industries and the value of working within a smaller company.

The programme is exclusively open to organisations based in the UK with 250 employees or less, which have an annual turnover of up to £50 million. We are able to contribute up to a maximum of £1500 towards the cost of the SME offering an internship for up to 10 weeks maximum.
