UK Internships 2015

Finding a good graduate job is hard at the best of times - with so many people going to university, competition for places is greater than ever before. But there is a way to give yourself an edge over others, and to give yourself the best chance of securing a job and gaining valuable work experience, and that's by doing an Internship. Please note - most of the programmes require you to be studying at a UK university and be eligible to work in the UK, as well as having an outstanding academic record.
