Student placements and internships

Students in any School and programme across the University are welcome to gain research or work experience in CINN, irrespective of their field of study, subject to capacity.

CINN participates in the various placement and research internship programmes of the University (such as the year-long professional placement of relevant degree courses, the UROP programme, PhD interdisciplinary placement opportunities, etc.).
