The Reading Internship Scheme (RIS) is run by the Careers Service at the University of Reading, in association with Santander Universities SME Programme and The Earley Charity, and offers project-based internships.
Internships typically last 6-12 weeks and take place over the summer. They are open to all students including postgraduates, allowing small to medium sized employers (SMEs) to access a wide range of talented students, and giving Reading University students valuable workplace experience.
The University has a budget to financially incentivise organisations to take on paid student interns. For local charities (and start-ups less than two years old) this can be up to 100% funding, whilst for others, up to 50% of the salary of an intern is available.
