Student Knowledge Exchange

Information for Employers

Want to add knowledge to your workforce?
Lacking resources to enable your growth?
Looking to appoint fresh thinking to your team?
Need expert insight to take the next step?

Keele University and The University of Birmingham have been awarded funding from the Office for Students and Research England to support students to undertake activity with businesses/organisations.

Available at no cost to businesses/organisations, our funding allows us to pay students a bursary to engage in an internship/consultancy with a business.

We are looking to offer students micro internships - 55 hours of work spread across 6-10 weeks, where we pay for the student's time.
