PGR Industry Insights Launch Event
Domain: B3 Professional and career development

Format: Information and Discussion
Suitable for: All

PhD internships are becoming increasingly popular and it isn’t hard to see why. In addition to gaining some real life experience in the workplace, undertaking an internship can help you to:
• expand and diversify your skillset
• establish new networks
• gain valuable experience of work outside academia
• explore roles and sectors that you hadn’t previously considered
• stand out from the crowd in an increasingly competitive job market
To provide PGRs with more opportunities to strengthen their employability, the Doctoral Academy has recently been working in collaboration with Careers & Employability to create a range of internships in industry and the third sector. Through these insight opportunities, PGRs will work in small teams to undertake a research project for an employer, produce a report, and deliver a presentation. The projects will run over a two week block and each student will have a maximum of 70 hours each to spend on them before presenting their results and possible solutions/recommendations.
If you’re interested in hearing about these opportunities, or simply wish to learn more about the benefits of undertaking an internship, come along to our launch event on 13 June.
