Internships: the ticket to your future career

There is no better way to prepare for your future than to actually give it a test drive, and the best way to do that is through an internship. Our final expo of the year brings employers and internship providers to campus so you can connect and begin making your mark on the world of work. Internships come in all shapes and sizes, which means this expo truly has something for everyone!

A soft landing in the world of work

It can take time and effort to translate your learnings from your degree into a meaningful career, so it’s never too soon to begin. Wherever you are in your studies, this expo is the perfect chance to explore opportunities and secure an internship that could take you to the next step. 

With an internship, the world is your oyster

Internships are available all over the world, and an overseas placement could be a fantastic way to see the world and get valuable workplace experience at the same time. Scholarships are often available to help cover the cost of interning abroad, so don’t miss the chance to connect with providers in other countries and learn what might be available to you.

I liked the students who were already prepared as they asked specific questions.
