University Student Research Internships

The University Internships Programme gives CCCU students experience of working with staff on real research and knowledge exchange projects with high quality outcomes. Christ Church Intern Students are paid through Unitemps, and projects run from 5 to 10 weeks over the summer break, completing by the end of July. Applications open tomorrow (19 March), so keep an eye out for more information coming soon!

Work Experience Fund

If you are you looking for work experience, but finding it financially difficult to take up the opportunity you really want – you may be eligible to benefit from two bursaries:

  • Travel Bursary – for assistance with travel costs (individual applications only).
  • Career Start Bursary – for all other costs associated with the work experience including potential money to test a business idea. Examples of possible uses for the Career Start Bursary include costs for buying suitable work wear, ad-hoc child care, specialist software and money to attend a conference etc.(Individual and group applications welcome).

For more information, including how to apply, click here.

Unitemps

If you’re looking for some part-time work experience and to earn some extra money whilst you study, then make sure you register with Unitemps! Unitemps also advertises for vacation work, internships, placements, full-time work and graduate roles. For more information, click here.

Volunteering

Volunteering is a great way to develop skills, engage with the local community, give back to others, make new friends and build a successful CV. To find out what opportunities are available, click here.

And, make sure when you are volunteering that you log your hours! Whether you volunteer with a charity, the University or the Students’ Union, by logging the hours you have given and the skills you have gained, you could be eligible for a Christ Church Volunteering award!
