Internship Scheme used: Student Campus Partnership (SCP) | Employer Engagement & Student Employment | University of Exeter
“Our intern worked as a research assistant on a psychophysiological experiment, helped to recruit participants to recruitment target, test them and also trained another intern to run the experiment and process psychophysiological data. Intern also processed, collated and archived all data.
The internship provided a very valuable experience in working with an enthusiastic and conscientious student to deliver a research project in a timely manner. This allowed me to complete work on a timescale that would otherwise have taken many more months, and therefore to deliver a research grant efficiently. The intern had already worked on the project (as an undergraduate) previously and so were able to continue where they left off and further develop their skills, while increasing their skills in people and time management. I hope that they have found the experience as useful and interesting as I have.”
