Reminder: design your future with Career Lab

Drawing of a question mark on paper

Career Lab: design your future is an exciting new programme exclusively for undergraduate students at Sussex.

Career Lab offers you the chance to take part in a range of opportunities, including paid internships, digital skills training, mentoring and virtual global study. Career Lab is tailored to your year of study and has been designed to develop your skills, experience, network and confidence throughout your time at Sussex.

First year and foundation students will have the opportunity to join digital masterclasses, a virtual global summer school and entrepreneurship tasters. Second year students will have access to paid summer internships both UK and global, a digital accelerator and research opportunities. Finalists can apply for a career mentor, deliver consultancy to a local employer and sign up for a package of job-hunting support on graduation.

Applications for each part of the programme open individually, meaning you can apply for a calendar of opportunities relevant to you and that fit to your plans.

Find out more about the new Career Lab: Design Your Future programme from our Student Connector, Zoe.
