Internships

The internship programme offers new graduates the opportunity to gain paid industry experience within an SME, voluntary organisation or a company where GCU alumni are employed. Unlike many other internship programmes, participating graduates receive the living wage, ensuring they are appropriately rewarded for their hard work. The Internship Fund was established thanks to £200,000 of philanthropic support from Sir Alex Ferguson CBE. To date over 65 new graduates have benefitted from the Fund with more than a quarter leading to permanent roles.

‌"I have always been a champion of providing opportunities to young people and through this initiative I hope to give new graduates a helping hand to boost their employability as they enter a particularly challenging job market."
Sir Alex Ferguson CBE, Founding Donor
