Santander Graduate Internships

Have you recently graduated? Could an internship help to develop your skills and work experience?

An internship is a great way to gain work experience in a sector that you are interested in working in.

The University of Plymouth in partnership with Santander Universities are offering funding to employers which will offset the cost of hiring of our alumni into a graduate role. 

The amount is intended to partially cover the employees’ wages which should be match funded by the organisation. The funding can contribute £150 per week for up to ten weeks, with the expectation that the organisation will also contribute at least £150 per week to the wages.

To be eligible the organisation must meet the following criteria:

  • They are a small and/or medium enterprise (SME) with fewer than 250 employees
  • They have a turnover of less than £50 million a year
  • They provide a contract of employment and pay you, the employee, through their payroll system
  • They have suitable liability insurance.

So, if you have graduated in the last two years or are currently in your final year of study, you may be able to create an opportunity with a business by informing them that you could be eligible for Santander Graduate Internship funding.

If you find an employer that is interested in this opportunity, either yourself or the employer can find out more by contacting the student jobs team at

Graduate Outcomes survey for recent graduates

Graduate Outcomes (GO) is a survey to find out what recent graduates go on to do after they have graduated.

The survey is important because your opinions will help current and future students gain an insight into career destinations and development and the University to shape our programmes for students who are following in your footsteps.

Please keep your details up to date and respond if HESA contacts you to complete the survey.
