Career Insights Bursary Application

Career Insights Bursary Application

You must be a current UK undergraduate Newcastle University student planning to undertake an unpaid career-related activity. Career Insights can take place during term time or vacations and must be completed within three months of graduation. Only activities which directly support the development of employability skills will be considered. Students are only able to apply for one Career Insights Bursary per academic year.

The Career Insights Bursary provides financial support to help you explore your career options. It aims to help you gain experience and develop graduate skills, by providing funding for unpaid opportunities.

The activity can't be part of your degree course, for academic credit or part of a Careers Service work experience scheme, such as our term-time internships. The activity should be within the UK.

Eligible students can receive a bursary of up to £250 to help with costs related to undertaking unpaid experience such as accommodation or travel. To qualify for a bursary of up to £500 you would normally need to meet at least one or more of the listed eligibility criteria below.

You will also need to be completing work experience of a minimum of 35 hours per week for a minimum of 2 weeks to qualify for the full amount of bursary of £500.

Retrospective applications will not be considered and this must be the first time you have completed the work experience; funding can't be allocated to repeat activities.

If you are not sure whether you are eligible, you may still apply. There is some limited funding available for those who do not directly meet the criteria. Each application will be considered on a case by case basis.
