Digital Internships

Our new Digital Internship Scheme provides organisations with fully-funded resources to help support their essential business requirements.

What is a digital internship?

We're offering employers the opportunity to recruit a Bath Spa University student for remote project-based work. The University will fully subsidise the students’ wages and is now seeking project opportunities that will also support our students’ skills and attributes development.

  • For employers, an internship could help you to solve a specific resource issue, or undertake an additional project whilst benefiting from fresh ideas. It's a low risk opportunity to try out future graduate talent.
  • For students, they provide an opportunity to develop skills needed for the world of work, ultimately enhancing their employability and long-term career prospects. It also gives them a unique opportunity to prepare for a digital age where virtual working becomes more common, and is a way of enabling them to prosper in the graduate market.

Projects need to be no more than 50 hours in total, part-time up to 15 hours per week (if in term time), and must be completed by 31 July 2020. They can start at any time.

We particularly welcome submissions from third sector organisations and SMEs.

How to take part

To take part, please complete our application form. You'll be asked to provide details of your internship, including a brief overview of the project and the skills required by the applicant. We'll review the information and get in touch with next steps.

Projects will be advertised to students via our online jobs portal, and we'll ask you to select the most suitable candidate. Once selected, we'll arrange for the student to be paid by Bath Spa University at a rate of £9.17/hour.

We have produced an employer guide with more information about the Digital Internship Scheme, with some guidance, expectations and frequently asked questions.
