Industry-Based Learning (IBL) and internships

Our Industry-Based Learning (IBL) program is highly recognized by the IT industry. High-achieving undergraduates may apply for a place in the program, which involves a scholarship and a 22-week industry placement during the third year of the degree. The placement is a part of the curriculum and is formally assessed and credited towards the degree.

If you do not qualify for the IBL program, you will be required to go for a 12-week internship in an industry-based environment after your second year of studies. We receive a number of requests throughout the year from employers interested in recruiting our students for internships. These opportunities will be publicised by the internship coordinator, and you will be assisted in writing your resume and cover letters.
