Santander Universities SME Internship Programme

The Santander Universities SME Internship Programme for 2019-20, run by the Careers and Employment Service, is now open for applications.

This scheme supports SMEs (Small and Medium-sized Enterprises) by making a contribution to the salary of a final year Northumbria student intern or Northumbria graduate intern.

Internships are an opportunity for students and graduates to gain valuable work experience. For the SME, it’s a chance to work with talented Northumbria students and graduates.

For the purposes of this funding, an SME is defined as a company (Limited Company, Charity, Social Enterprise/CIC, Partnership etc) that has fewer than 250 employees and a turnover of below £50 million per year. It must also be registered and based in the UK.

If you are an SME and would like to receive full eligibility criteria and guidance, along with an application form, please contact us at

If you are a final year Northumbria student or a Northumbria graduate, and interested in being informed of any opportunities to apply Internships, please send an email to giving your year of study and your degree course, including what type of degree (e.g. BA, MA, etc).
