Norwich university extends internship programme
A graduate internship programme run by the University of East Anglia is set to continue after exceeding its original targets.
The Project Evolve Graduate Internship Programme has been extended until the end of July after 198 placements were secured for students - surpassing a target of 170.
The scheme, which was due to draw to a close in March, offers local businesses the opportunity to secure a graduate to work on a specific project for up to 12 weeks, either full or part-time.
The move to extend the project means even more graduates and businesses will gain from the programme, which has proven to be a cost-effective way of helping organisations get a new initiative off the ground, whilst helping a graduate to improve their skills and experience.
Management information and business strategy specialists Mint Consult Ltd, secured recent UEA graduate James Carter to assist with the development of their service.
