The Careers and Employability Service is excited to announce the launch of a new scheme that will provide international students with opportunities to gain professional work experience in the UK. The International Student Talent Pool programme will provide full-time paid internships that will make use of the language skills and in-country knowledge international students at the University of Portsmouth possess.

The internships will fit within Tier 4 (student) visas by running through the summer (for those on undergraduate degrees) and post-September (for those finishing Masters’ programmes). They will bring together the unique skills and experience our international students possess and with the needs of local business. For students, gaining professional work experience either during or after studies, can provide a fantastic experience to utilise when returning home or when looking for graduate jobs in the UK post-study.

Janet Woolnough, project coordinator said: “This is a really exciting programme to be involved in, as it provides targeted opportunities for our international students using their skills and cultural experience to benefit local businesses.”
