Are you looking for support or a fresh perspective on a project?

The Reading Internship Scheme supports organisations in connecting up with our undergraduates through 4, 6 and 8 week internships. We provide a 50% grant towards an intern’s salary for profit earning SMEs, and a 100% grant for charities and not for profits.

You can work with a student at part time hours (up to 20 hours per week) during term time, or at full time hours (35 hours per week) during vacation periods. We have been supporting mostly remote internships during the pandemic, but are flexible with working in a work place as long as measures are in place to ensure the work place is Covid secure.

If you would like to find out more about the programme, please visit the Reading Internship Scheme website. Alternatively, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the scheme’s coordinator Holly Forsyth by emailing

We hope to hear from you soon!
