Work Opportunity Options

1. Part-time work

Many of our students undertake part time work throughout the semester and vacation periods both to develop their professional skills and earn some additional income.

Students are particularly interested in gaining work related to their degree course or an occupation they are considering for future employment. However, many other students are also looking for casual work in different settings to support them through University.

 

2. Summer Internships for students in Cyprus and abroad

Summer internships are a very popular option for work experience amongst our students and we have students from all disciplines looking for these opportunities.

Internships generally last between 4 to 12 weeks during the summer vacation and are undertaken in a particular occupation or professional area.

Internships are an opportunity for employers to gain dedicated resources during the summer vacation and to get new projects started. Internships are a great way to get to know an individual’s potential, allowing you to take on students for a few weeks to ‘test out’ future graduates.

For the summer internships abroad, students may receive grant covering their travel and living expenses through their participation in European and international funded programs.

 

3. Internships for Recent Graduates in Cyprus and abroad

Internships for recent graduates are also very important for their professional development. They can take place at any given time during the year, since there are no University restrictions. It is also a great way for the employers to ‘test’ their potential.

Our recent graduates are also given the opportunity to get their 1st professional experience in the European labour market through EU funded programs.
