Students attending a Big City Bright Future internship insight day.

Student Opportunities

Opportunities range from work experience and paid internships, to overseas challenges, to university summer schools.

Employability is a key theme running throughout all of our programmes and we aim to address many of the Gatsby and Developing the Young Workforce benchmarks. 

Most of our Student opportunities are only available for students already enrolled on IntoUniversity programmes and some lead to contextual university offers or paid employment. We run a three-week Big City Bright Future internship in partnership with globally-recognised firms. Our Entrepreneurship Programme includes the week-long Academy of Enterprise programme and aims to inspire young people with a hands-on experience of being an entrepreneur. IU Connect is our online networking platform which provides career insight opportunities with our corporate partners and CV and employability support.

Once our students have left school, we also continue to support them through our Student Associate Network.

'The most important aspect of Big City Bright Future, that enabled me to secure a great job upon graduation, was the exposure it gave me to high skilled careers in industries I had yet to explore. It enabled me to understand a new world of opportunity, and it set the foundation for the internships and opportunities I went on to secure during and after university.’
Samaira Saleem, former Big City Bright Future BlackRock intern

"IntoUniversity has given me so many opportunities in terms of experiences and interviews. It’s been so helpful for my CV, being able to write really valuable things that I have done with IntoUniversity. My CV is now really packed – for example, I took part in the Social Mobility Business Partnership and will soon be doing an internship with Big City Bright Future."
