Student opportunities

Get involved

For our current students, we run lots of schemes that students can get involved in to develop skills, enhance job prospects, help people and have fun!

  • Internships
  • Associate scheme
  • Volunteers

And all these activities can be included in your HEAR report to show just how much you did during your time at the University of Bedfordshire.


Nothing beats real-world experience to impress future employers and help you get a job after graduation.

Our internships scheme gives workplace opportunities for all students in local and national businesses and organisations, as well as within the University itself.

Find out more about the scheme and hear what previous interns thought of their experience
