This program, offered through our Future Space initiative, provides a unique opportunity for postgraduate students to gain valuable real-world experience while offering businesses access to the exceptional talent and skills of our students.

Each micro internship within the Future Space - CONNECT programme lasts up to 8 weeks, with a commitment from our students of 6 hours per week. These internships cover a diverse range of projects and disciplines, including marketing strategy and implementation, UX/UI design, data analysis, SEO, web content creation, wireframing, and social media management.

Our postgraduate students, mentored by industry experts, are equipped with the latest industry knowledge and are eager to apply their expertise to deliver impactful solutions for your business. By participating in the Future Space - CONNECT Micro Internship Program, businesses will have the opportunity to benefit from the fresh ideas, innovative perspectives, and cutting-edge skills our students possess. As an added incentive, Loughborough University London will cover the cost of the internships by providing a £500 stipend to each student upon successful completion of the program.

This brief will outline the scope, objectives, and requirements of the project, ensuring that it aligns with your business needs.
  3. Student Applications and Interviews: We will then open applications for our students, who will express their interest in your project through a short application form and a video interview. This allows them to showcase their skills, experience, and enthusiasm for the opportunity to work with your organisation.

  5. Candidate Review and Communication: You will have the opportunity to review the shortlisted candidates and directly communicate with them to arrange informal interviews. This step allows you to gauge their compatibility with your business and project, ensuring a good fit for both parties.
  6. Candidate Selection and Commencement: Finally, you can select the ideal candidate from the pool of applicants and get started with the micro internship. Once the selection is made, our team will provide the necessary support to facilitate a smooth onboarding process, allowing you to kick-start the project and benefit from the student's contributions.
