Internships are temporary positions with an emphasis on on-the-job training, they can be paid or unpaid. We deliver two internship schemes to DMU students and recent graduates, Frontrunners and Graduate Champions.

The schemes offer students and recent graduates the opportunity to gain quality work experience, enabling you to develop key skills that employers look for when recruiting graduates.

Current DMU students can apply for internships through the Frontrunners scheme and recent, eligible graduates can apply to our Graduate Champions Scheme.
