Showcasing Knowledge Exchange within the Careers and Student Enterprise Service
We ensure that our graduates are equipped to adapt, lead and take on any challenge in the rapidly evolving world of industry 5.0.
We have highlighted some of the outstanding opportunities our team have created specifically for our students to develop their professional Fitness and Mental Wealth skills. By engaging in real life situations and - through knowledge exchange - they are making a tangible impact to the organisation and communities that they are working alongside.
If you are interested in finding out how working with our students can benefit your community or organisation, please get in touch with the Career Zone Team at email@example.com.
The University of East London's Funded Internship Scheme funds and facilitates a range of internship opportunities both within UEL Schools and Services, and external organisations. The Scheme aims to provide opportunities which are part time and flexible to suit the needs of current students. Internships last 12 weeks at 14 hours per week, to be worked flexibly around students' studies.
The Post Graduate Placements Team supports international students on Tier 4 visas who are undertaking a master’s in Computing, Engineering and Business Administration. Each programme includes an embedded placement of two academic terms that lasts approximately eight months.
Our international students come with additional language skills and the capability of offering diverse perspectives in their strategic approach to challenges offering employers new possibilities.
With three intakes per year in January, May and September employers have the possibility of engaging with students across the academic year and aren’t tied to traditional engagement cycles that typically commence in September.
For organisations wishing to find out more about how they too can benefit from hosting a placement student, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. UEL Change Day
UEL Change Day is hosted in collaboration with We Make Change. The event is a fantastic opportunity for students to volunteer one day with an exciting and innovative social enterprise, completing or problem solving a specific task.
A range of social enterprises join the event; from one enterprise supporting the transformation of refugees into entrepreneurs, to another creating an app that provided an educational platform showcasing Black British figures and their achievements. During the UEL Change Day, student volunteers are tasked with research, content writing, designing a blueprint for a new program and much more!
Student volunteering offers students volunteering opportunities that are both in person and virtual, providing them to have the opportunity to apply their classroom learning to practical setups, while simultaneously giving back to the community.
