Bagged Yourself a Summer Internship Overseas? You may be able to Secure some Funding too!

By Joe O'Brien, on 9 March 2020

Written by Hidy Fu, Global Internships Officer at UCL Careers

At UCL, we are really keen to help enhance the global nature of our student experience. One of the most practical ways we thought we could help is by supporting you financially with your great effort in having secured your own internship! Interested to find out more? Read on!

We have two types of funding: The Global Internships Bursary and the Erasmus + Traineeship Grant.

Have a quick glance at some of the key elements of the funding on offer, which are two separate schemes, both under the Global Internships Programme:

Global Internships Bursary Erasmus + Traineeship Grant
  • Up to £500
  • Up to €520* monthly
  • Internship outside of UK
  • Internship must last for at least 4 weeks
  • Internship outside of UK, within EU
  • Internship must last for at least 60 days
For both:

  • Open to non-finalist undergraduates and non-Tier 4 postgraduates
  • Priority given to those who have not received global internship funding before

* An additional grant of €20 a month is awarded to students who meet widening participation criteria (added automatically for eligible students).

If you like collecting badges, you will be glad to hear that the bursary or grant will be recognised on your Higher Education Achievement Record (HEAR).

Want to apply for both to increase your chance of securing funding? Well you can! You will need to submit two separate applications and will only be able to receive one (if your application is successful) and it will be at the discretion of UCL Careers to determine which type of funding you will receive.

Follow the links below to read all the terms and conditions and start thinking about applying! Application will open next week!

Global Internships Bursary                      Erasmus + Traineeship Grant

Deadline to apply for both funding: 26th April 2020
