Our Knowledge Exchange Internships (KEIs) give North East small and medium-sized enterprises a unique chance to engage with expertise from Teesside University, supported by the European Regional Development Fund.
How does it work?
A talented graduate (the intern), mentored by a University academic with relevant expertise drives forward a project for your organisation. This combination of fresh thinking and hugely valuable experience can bring cutting-edge benefits to your business.
KEIs are flexible, up to 12 months, according to your needs and can be approved within five working days of application.
