Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Initial work was undertaken in the summer of 2016 when a student intern conducted a project which sought to understand and determine the landscape concerning the activity of work experience and internship placements undertaken by both undergraduate and postgraduate taught students in the Faculty of Science at the University of Strathclyde. Work placements or internships are broad terms used to describe a wide range of experiences that seek to give the student valuable experience and skills which are widely respected by graduate employers.
