#USWClassof2020: Join us on the Springboard Graduate Internship Scheme

USW Class Of 2020 - Springboard Internships

Now in its 6th year, although re-imagined for the challenges facing graduate employability in 2020, the Springboard Graduate Internship Scheme is now open for expressions of interest from Class of 2020 alumni.

An integral part of the umbrella USW 2030: Springboard Programme that supports the last three years of graduating students, the Springboard Graduate Internship Scheme is specifically for Class of 2020 and sits alongside wider resources and opportunities including access to enterprise & entrepreneurship activities, training and graduate employability-linked funding opportunities. 

Class of 2020 graduates will have the opportunity to apply for one of twenty paid internships hosted by Faculties and Corporate Services Departments across the University. 

The Scheme has two cohorts - cohort one graduate interns start their four month placement on 1 October 2020. Cohort two graduate interns start their four month placement on February 2021.

Successful applicants who join USW as an intern receive over £10,000 worth of professional investment as part of their Springboard journey. This investment is made up of:


  • A four month paid internship

  • ILM Level 3 L&M Qualification fully funded

  • IT equipment loaned to reduce digital disadvantage

  • Access to new networks and annual leave entitlement


A great addition to anyone's CV, the University is delighted to welcome early years graduate talent to help it further navigate the professional challenges of the sector and innovate its programming.  

While the project round is not yet open (opens mid-August), we invite Class of 2020 graduates to register their interest for the Scheme ahead of time.
