Queen’s University Belfast is one of the leading universities in the UK and Ireland with a distinguished heritage and history.
Founded in 1845 as Queen’s College Belfast, we became an independent university in 1908. Today, Queen’s is ranked 200 in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021), and a member of the Russell Group of UK research intensive universities, combining excellence in research and education with a student-centred ethos.
OUR INTERNSHIP SCHEME
As part of our Business with Spanish degrees, students undertake a compulsory internship in Spain. This is an integral part of the degree, providing students with the fluency and confidence to communicate and work effectively in an international business environment.
Compulsory internship applies to the following degree programmes:
- BSc International Business with Spanish
- BSc Economics with Spanish
Students on these pathways are required to work for a minimum of 9 months in a paid position, and can do this across multiple internships. The internship takes place prior to the student’s final year of study.
In order to maximise the impact of the internship for both the employer and the student, the university proposes that all internships;
- Be paid (no minimum salary stipulated)
- Be relevant to the students area of study to allow them to build on existing knowledge and skills
- Are insured. Employers should include QUB interns in theirpublic and employer’s liability insurance
- Be formalised with an internship agreement between the university, the employer and the student

Our students are available to commence internship from August 2020. If you would like to learn more about how a student can be a cost-effective solution to your recruitment requirements, please get in touch and we will be more than happy to have a chat over a virtual coffee!

"At KPMG, we strongly value the relationship that the QUB Placement office has built with KPMG through ongoing engagement and employability initiatives, in order to forge networks between KPMG and QUB students. We have witnessed first-hand the degree to which employability skills are incorporated into students’ curriculum and learning, through the QUB Placement office’s annual trip to the KPMG offices and KPMG Insight Day. We have always found QUB students to be dedicated and engaged in their work, and prepared for their work experience at KPMG. We recognise that this is largely due to the QUB Placement office’s focus on employability skills”
