Studying in Liverpool, you’ll be surrounded by plenty of employment opportunities.

One of the best ways to get some on-the-job experience is by doing internships at tech companies. 

The good news is that there are many tech companies in the North West of England that offer summer internships or formal work placements as part of your course. 

You should really consider an internship in your penultimate year of studies as you’ll be more prepared for it after first year but also don’t want it to distract you from final year exams. An increasing number of shorter internships exist  -  ‘insight weeks’ - aimed at first year students and lasting around two weeks.

A benefit of internships at tech companies is that you may be fast tracked in the postgraduate recruitment process. The company already knows you and how you work, making you stand out from the pile of faceless CVs they receive.
