Final call: Postgraduate Advantage Scheme

Interested in a flexible work placement during term time or vacation period? Bursaries of £1000 available! 

The Postgraduate Advantage Scheme is still accepting applications and we would particularly like to see more applications from Information School students. 

Successful applicants will receive a bursary from the University to undertake an internship of 100 hours, which can take place at any time before the end of July 2016. You can fit the hours around your studies. 

To take part in the scheme, you first need to find an internship. You can either source and secure your own in an area that interests you (help on the PAS website is given), or apply for one which we have already found via myVacancies. 

Roles which are still available include:
Data Scientist (particularly keen to attract students from the Information School)
Marketing Intern
Project Coordinator
Conversions Analyst
Or you can source your own internship which is suited to your career interests. 

Interested in taking part?
The first step is to familiarise yourself with details of the scheme on the PAS website: http://www.shef.ac.uk/careers/postgraduates/pas
Once you have found an internship, you will be required to submit a bursary application for approval. This is to authorise the suitability of the internship and approve the bursary. 
We have limited number of bursaries available for each department and they will be awarded to those who apply first with a good application. 

What did last years participants think? 
“For me, the whole point of going to university is not just the academic degree, but also to gain a well-rounded experience. 
The Postgraduate Advantage Scheme helped me to achieve that. It really made my university experience more meaningful.”

This scheme is a unique opportunity and only available to postgraduate taught students in the Faculty of Social Sciences - don't miss out!
