Internships and engagement

UC students Laura Smith and James Martin doing an Arts internship at the RDUnit (UC radio station). It was set up in the Pallet Pavilion post-quakes.

Employers engage with UC students through internships, work-integrated learning, research, voluntary work and part-time work.

Offering an internship or summer/winter work placement is a great way to meet and recruit prospective employees. It gives employers a chance to view the intern for future potential work, and students are always very interested in obtaining relevant work experience.

Benefits of engagement

  • Raise your profile and build the relationship between your organisation and the university
  • Interns offer short-term support to deliver projects that you may not have the internal resources to complete
  • Obtain access to the latest knowledge of recent technological innovations
