Paid Undergraduate Internships

Intern and Earn  with a Paid Internship!

Applications for June 2024 are now closed.

‘The opportunity to do some actual teaching in front of a class- I found that really valuable, as I didn’t realise how much I’d enjoy that aspect prior to carrying out the internship‘

'My experience has meant that I have gone from being on the fence about teaching, and unsure about different aspects of it, to being certain that I do want to be a teacher in the future’.
