Virtual internship opportunities with Pagoda Projects

Regent’s has teamed up with Pagoda Projects to offer a variety of virtual summer internships at companies from a broad range of sectors across many countries. 

With a proven track record of delivering quality work experience, signing up for a Pagoda Projects’ virtual internship over the summer is a great way to remain fully engaged in your development during this unusual time, and to benefit from exposure to different cultures’ approach to business.

Each remote internship is a full-time position, Monday-Friday each week for the duration of the programme (although the exact number of working hours each week will differ slightly between the different host companies) and options include:

  • Option 1: 4 Week Programme
    Monday 13 July – 7 August
  • Option 2: 8 Week Programme
    Monday 13 July – 4 September
  • Option 3: 12 Week Programme
    Monday 13 July – 2 October

There are over 100 different companies to choose from, meaning you could become a Graphic Designer in Ho Chi Minh City, a Business Development and Marketing Intern in Taipei, a Business Analyst in Mexico City or an Environmental Psychologist in Qingdao!

Cost

The programme fee is usually £1,495 per person for the 4, 8 or 12-week option, however Regent's has secured a huge £900 saving for students, meaning the fee is now just £595 per person. There’s no upfront payment or application fee to start the process, and the fee is only due when you have secured an internship you’re happy with.

As part of the Remote Internship Programme, you will be partnered with a cultural mentor who will help you increase your intercultural awareness. This cultural exposure will not only assist you during your internship (collaborating with colleagues and external partners) but will also connect you with other students from all corners of the globe.

The Turing Scheme

The Turing Scheme is the UK government global funding programme designed to provide funding for international opportunities in education and training across the world.

The Turing Scheme contributes to the UK Government’s commitment to a Global Britain and is focused on four objectives:

  • Global Britain – In line with the UK Government’s vision of a Global Britain, Turing Scheme projects support high-quality placements, enhance existing partnerships and encourage the forging of new relationships across the world
     
  • Levelling up – The Turing Scheme projects widen participation and support social mobility across the UK. They should help and promote equal access and opportunities to all students, learners and pupils regardless of background
     
  • Developing key skills – These projects offer unique, career-building opportunities. They give participants the hard and soft skills sought by employers and bridge the gap between education and work
     
  • Value for UK taxpayers – These projects optimise social value in terms of potential costs, benefits and risks. 

The Turing Scheme offers students life-changing experiences across the globe through either study or work placement abroad.

Regent’s has been successful in securing the funding for the 2021/22 academic year, starting from September 2021 until end of August 2022.

Similarly to the Erasmus+ funding, grants are supplementary, non-repayable and are intended to contribute to any expenses incurred during the period abroad. Unlike the Erasmus grants however, Turing Scheme is available for international (outside EU) study and work placements. 

Regent’s students and recent graduates (who graduated within last 12 months) will be eligible to apply for the funding through the International Partnerships team. Study or work placements can last four weeks to 12 months.

Grant rates:

Students receive funding to help cover the general costs of living while they are abroad. The amount of grants to contribute towards cost of living is depending on the destination:

1. For placements lasting between four and eight weeks:

  • To Group 1 (high cost of living) destinations: £136.25 per week
  • To Group 2 and 3 (medium & lower cost of living) destinations: £120 per week

2. For placements lasting over eight weeks:

More information about grant rates is available on the Turing website.

Additional support

Additional support is available for students from disadvantaged backgrounds, who will receive a higher cost of living grant.

For placements lasting between four and eight weeks:

  • To Group 1 destinations: £163.50 per week
  • To Group 2 and 3 destinations: £147.50 per week

For placements lasting over eight weeks:

  • To Group 1 destinations: £490 per month
  • To Group 2 and 3 destinations: £445 per month

An amount of funding will be provided to go towards the direct costs of travel. This will depend on distance between the home and destination organisation and will support the cost of the round trip. All amounts available have been outlined on the Turing website.

Additional support is also available for student with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND). For students with SEND, the scheme will fund up to 100% of actual costs for support directly related to their additional needs:
