The work experience bursary scheme is open for business for this academic year (2014/15). Now in its third year the scheme aims to support full-time undergraduate students with their work experience opportunity. These kinds of roles are often unpaid or expenses only and this is where we can help to plug the gap.
A few key points to bear in mind:
– Opportunities can be undertaken at any point of the academic year including vacation periods (Christmas, Easter and summer 2015)
– Eligible students can apply for up to £250 and this rises to £1000 for those students from a WP background/in receipt of financial assistance from the University
– Scheme is open to all undergraduate full-time UK/EU and international students
– Relevant opportunities should NOT form an official part of a degree course. This includes placement year, work experience modules over a semester and medicine/dentistry electives.
