Increase your employability by undertaking an internship!
Undertaking an internship demonstrates your commitment to employability, providing you with opportunities to gain valuable work experience and training which will help your future graduate job prospects.
An increasing number of graduate jobs are secured through undertaking structured internships or demonstrating relevant work experience. Employers are looking for applications from students who have spent time developing transferable skills through employment experience as well as through other activities.
At the University of Stirling Management School we are committed to student employability and encourage our students to work with the Career Development Centre who work with our students to prepare them for internships.
