Our 12-week virtual internships provide UK university students with the opportunity to tackle various international development issues and achieve real outcomes for our partners in Sri Lanka.
Our course specific internships take place remotely, with students working independently on research projects set by the Travelteer team - all you need is a computer, phone and internet connection.
Each student is paired with a Travelteer mentor that will guide them through the research process with regular contact via video conferencing. In addition to their research project, students will also help the Travelteer team create and implement online marketing campaigns and write informative blog posts showcasing aspects of their given research projects.
