The University of Sunderland’s Graduate Internship Scheme is a great way for you to launch your chosen career. All of our Graduate Internships are paid a minimum annual salary of £17,000 per annum and opportunities are available across a range of different sectors and industries. The vast majority of internships are with companies who are local to Sunderland, and all are located in the North East region. 

The scheme offers a 12 month internship, whereby you are able to showcase your graduate level skills and competencies, whilst gaining practical experience with a local employer. Around 9 out of 10 of our Graduate Internships become permanent following the 12 month internship period.

Short term internships are often available at different times within the academic year, and are great ways to gain practical experience. Students are usually provided with bursaries during their time with the employer.

The Employment Agency is the University’s in-house recruitment hub for employers, and offers a great way for student to gain ad-hoc, paid experience.
