Here at Graduate Projects we promote opportunities for students, graduates, researchers and other early-career professionals to apply their skills and expertise to projects, challenges, innovations or other tasks and activities in the workplace. The opportunities may be paid, educational or voluntary. We also promote activities for educational and professional development, for example conferences and mentoring. We aim to enrich the capabilities and prospects of students, researchers and early-career talent by facilitating links with a wide range of organisations that offer great training and professional opportunities and value contemporary skills and thinking in their workplaces.
The opportunities we advertise are provided by a wide variety of organisations (called providers). They may be businesses, education providers, research organisations, government departments, community or professional associations. Each provider has an organisational profile and their scope of work and list of posts can be viewed on it. Graduate Projects provides a great way for organisations to showcase their projects, research, innovations or other work and attract promising talent who can contribute towards them.
Graduate Projects aims to facilitate collaborations. For example, this could be through consultancies led by a professor, research partnerships or academic-industry project assignments. Collaboration between business and education is becoming more important these days, especially in research and innovation in areas such as science, technology and medicine. These collaborations often take the form of projects, research programs and partnership enterprises. There are great opportunities for organisations to showcase and promote such collaborations through Graduate Projects and attract developing talent and expertise.
As a user of Graduate Projects, you can browse through a wide variety of opportunities to suit your skills and expertise. The search filters allow you to look for specific types of opening, for example internships, placement or project work that may contribute to your academic studies. Or you may have a particular expertise, for example in medical research or business systems, and you are looking for a research or professional contract in this area. We provide you with a powerful search facility that allows you to target the specific types of opportunity and activity that you are interested in.
Some organisations request that you contact them directly if interested in their opportunities. In this case, the process and information for your application are given in their post description. For other organisations, we provide a convenient way for you to connect with them. You can set up an account, create a profile and send the link of your profile to the contact person in the organisation. We also have a messaging facility that can be used to get in touch with the relevant contact person. By creating an account, you can also receive feedback and incorporate it into your profile. Graduate Projects allows you to search, apply, manage and network for hands-on educational and professional development in a single space.
