Kick-start your career while you’re still at university by taking up an internship.
Launched in partnership with Santander Universities, the university wide Stirling Internship Programme offers you paid internships on a full-time and part-time basis, from first year to final year. You’ll find your strengths and gain valuable skills working with organisations in the local area.
We also have links to a range of internships offered by external organisations, including the Saltire Scholar Internship Programme, which offers great opportunities if you’re a third year student.
