This internships scheme puts employers in touch with OU students and recent graduates for four to eight weeks.
We’re just one of several universities working in the Cardiff Capital region to help local employers find graduates. You can find out more on the Venture Graduates website and follow the scheme on Twitter .
We’re always looking to put our students in touch with employers. Instead of being based at the workplace, you'll work online from home in the same way as you study as an OU student. Just like an internship at a workplace, you'll work on projects and tasks given to you by an employer and have regular catch-ups and support from them.
