Student and Graduate Information

GraduateOn: Developing your real world skills
What is GraduateOn?

GraduateOn is the University of Chichester internship scheme for second and final year students.

If you are a second or final year student and successfully register with GraduateOn, you will be eligible to apply for a range of paid internship opportunities with local employers advertised direct to you through the scheme.

GraduateOn is a great way for you to gain paid experience in a professional environment, enabling you to develop valuable skills needed to progress in your chosen career and 'try out' a sector you are interested in.  The job market is more competitive than ever and an internship will provide you with valuable real life work experience that will help you stand out from the crowd. 

We work with employers in West Sussex and neighbouring areas to ensure we can offer job roles in a range of different sectors and professions and we assess every opportunity to ensure that it provides a valuable work experience for a student or graduate.

GraduateOn internships pay at least the National Minimum Wage.  They can be full or part-time and last between 4 weeks (20 days) and 12 months.

This internship has exceeded my expectations and has been an invaluable experience. The team of people I have worked with have been amazingly supportive and excellent role models. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity I have been given.
