Overview

The technology sector is rapidly expanding and employers are constantly on the lookout for bright graduate talent to join their teams. Contrary to popular belief, you don’t always need a STEM degree to land a tech-focused graduate role – join us for this three-day programme to find out how you can break into this exciting and innovative sector.

What does the technology internship experience involve?

Taking place between 30th June and 2nd July, this internship experience is designed to help you understand the opportunities available in technology, develop key skills to boost your applications and build your network in the sector. Here’s a breakdown of the programme:

Day one (9:00am – 5:30pm)

Take part in sector overviews and expert skills sessions delivered by our leading partner employers: Accenture, Amazon, Bloomberg, Goldman Sachs, Google and Vodafone.

Day two (9:00am – 4:30pm)

Begin your work project to simulate real-life tasks you’d be responsible for on a technology internship. Our partner employers and recent graduates will be on hand to support you throughout the project work and there will also be time for networking with the firms and other participants. 

Day three (9:00am – 2:00pm)

After completing your project, there will be a final skills session and a closing celebration to mark the end of your internship experience. You will receive feedback on your work once you’ve completed the internship.

We’ll be providing full details of the Technology internship experience sessions soon and you can view the schedule and programme agenda for more details here. This is a free experience and can be completed fully virtually.

How does it benefit my future career?

This internship experience will give you the tools to develop key competencies that top tech employers are looking for in graduates, giving you a competitive edge in job applications. Taking part will also demonstrate to employers how you’re being proactive and resilient at a time where fewer opportunities are available. You'll come away from the experience having made valuable connections with key representatives from world-leading firms like Google, Bloomberg and Accenture and with deeper knowledge of the roles they offer.
