After completing your course you will step into a 4-week internship, where you will have the opportunity to apply your newly developed skills in the real world. This not only provides an exciting opportunity to positively impact a company by exercising what you have learnt, but also to gain work experience in an area that interests you. Internship projects are structured and outlined by our respective partner firms, and may vary from company-to-company, according to their needs and client requests at the time.
