Funded internships with Santander

Paid work experience where interns will need to complete a work project offered by a participating Employer.

Available projects will be advertised on MetHub, and you will need to apply directly to the Employer; instructions for how to apply will be listed on each individual project listing.

Work projects will require a minimum of 70 hours and a maximum of 108 hours of completion (up to 35 hours per week) unless the Employer is based in Greater London, which has its own durations*.

The scheme is only open to students of all study years and across all schools and courses.


  • gain valuable experience by contributing to a real business project
  • develop new skills

  • gain an insight into an industry

  • develop strong links with a company opening up potential for future employment.


Participants of the Santander Internship Scheme will be paid £1,000 by the Employer once they are satisfied that the project is complete. 

Getting started

Cardiff Met students and graduates can arrange an internship in one of two ways:

  1. log into MetHub to view and apply for current Santander Internships - the company will then manage the shortlisting and interviewing
  2. approach a desired company about the internship scheme and ask them to contact santanderplacements@cardiffmet.ac.uk if they are interested in potentially taking part

*Durations differ for internships located within the boroughs of Greater London, please speak to the team for more information.
