Reading University internship scheme open

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.
