You can apply to go on an eight week internship in ChinaMexicoVietnam or Manchester (UK) in collaboration with Pagoda Projects.

You can apply if you are on any of the following courses (or their pathways):

  • MSc Management
  • MSc International Business
  • MSc Banking and Finance
  • MFin International Finance
  • MSc International Marketing
  • MSc Islamic Finance

You apply towards the end of the first semester of your programme. Internships are awarded on merit based on your academic performance on the MSc programme, a short personal statement and possibly an interview.

Internships are offered to around 25% of the students studying on the above degrees. Each year, this offers in the region of 75+ students the chance to experience a global internship.

Unfortunately, passport holders from some countries may not be eligible to apply for this programme but we will work with you to offer alternatives during your time in Dundee.

How this will help with your CV

Employers overwhelmingly believe graduates who have an internship experience are more employable due to your increased experience of the workings of international companies and organisations.

Support

You can join the community of other internship holders through dedicated Skype contacts and Facebook groups. You will also have an English speaking tutor during your internship who will give you ongoing support and provide you with 24-hour emergency contact.
