University of Exeter – Graduate Business Placement Scheme

The Graduate Business Partnership scheme helps recent graduates secure full-time graduate roles, with supportive employers in the South West.

The internships are in a wide range of sectors, including working in Higher Education; Advertising; Arts and Culture; Engineering; and Legal Services.

Types of internship vary, but usually cover a variety of roles, such as Marketing, IT, Web Development, PR, Technical, Environmental, Engineering, Market Research, Business Planning, Accounts and Sales.

The employers are often Small Medium Size Enterprises (SMEs) or large organisations such as local Councils, the NHS and utility companies.

The internships are usually located in the South West of England, although occasionally we have opportunities further afield such as in London and the Midlands.

The placements are open to graduates from all universities to apply for.
