Places Still Available under Postgraduate Advantage Scheme

15th April 2016

The Postgraduate Advantage Scheme (PAS) offers full funding for 100 hour paid internships (£1000) for taught postgraduate (PGT) in the Faculty of Social Sciences, which includes Architecture, Landscape, East Asian Studies, Law, Economics, Management, Education, Politics, Geography, Sociological Studies, Information School, Urban Studies and Planning, and Journalism.

As the scheme targets PGT students currently studying at the university, students can only work part-time to ensure enough time for their study. At the university we recommend 16 hours per week. As far as international students' visas are concerned, the PAS internship is considered by the Home Office as employment. This means that international students are limited to working a maximum of 20 hours per week under their student visa. The PAS internship has to be completed by July 2016. Do you know a business who might need an extra pair of hands for their new projects? This scheme opens to all PGT students at the Faculty of Social Science so the projects don't have to be China related. For further information please contact Yiyun Ling, GREAT Ambassadors (China) Scheme Coordinator on 0114 2220938 or email
