Q: I previously completed a micro-internship with an employer, can I apply to/undertake the same placement as part of the Micro-Internship Programme again?
No. Students are unable to undertake or apply for the same micro-internship with an employer – even if the micro-internship takes place in a different term or academic year.
Q: Can I apply to/undertake a micro-internship with an employer who has hosted me as a micro-intern previously, if the project is different?
Yes, but only if the project is different to the micro-internship you completed with them previously.
