Undertaking an internship or placement has many potential benefits. For example, it can provide a valuable insight into a specific job role or employer. It can also allow you to develop workplace skills or it might even help you secure a graduate-level position. There are also many different types of internship. There are internships you can do during an academic vacation, others you can do part-time during your studies and year-long placements that you undertake as an essential part of your degree course.
