International Talent Summer Internship Scheme

The UWE Bristol International Talent Summer Internship Scheme is a cost-effective and low-risk opportunity for all employers in the West of England, offering you a salary subsidy of £646 to employ a UWE Bristol international student on a fixed-term basis.

In line with the latest advice from the UK Government and the prevention of Covid-19, we’re moving our Careers and Enterprise provision online and staff will be working remotely. This means we will need to postpone and review our internship schemes.

We hope to be able to offer a revised internship scheme soon and all eligible organisations will be contacted in due course.

Please email us at uweinternships@uwe.ac.uk if you have any questions.
