A wide range of internships and work shadowing placements are offered exclusively to Exeter College students. All internships offered through the Exeter College internship programme are paid. Work shadowing placements are not usually paid.

Bursaries are available to Exeter students undertaking work experience, internships, work shadowing placements or volunteering.

It is the aim of the College that all students who wish to undertake some form of work experience should be able to do so, regardless of their financial situation.
