Collaborate with us

We can advise employers on the Trinity education and explore opportunities to work with us to advance our academic mission and better prepare our students for the changing workplace of the future.

Ways in which you can work with us include:

Providing internships and work placements

Experiential and work-based learning gives students the opportunity to apply their academic knowledge to the “real world” and to take their first steps into the world of work. It allows them to explore organisations and sectors they might be interested in working in and get valuable life experience.

We engage with employers and work in collaboration with Academic Schools to identify, explore and develop other suitable internship and work placement opportunities where possible.Trinity’s Guided Reflection Tool encourages students to reflect on the graduate attributes they are developing.

Several Schools in Trinity have established internship programmes which are run in partnership with employers (click on link for further information):

Providing work-related projects

Several Trinity courses require students to undertake work-related projects as part of their studies. These can range from an undergraduate final year project to one which could form the basis of a Masters or PhD thesis.

Delivery of skills workshops

Employer-led skills workshops are short skills training sessions running throughout the academic year (timing is dependent on venue availability). These provide an opportunity to work with a small group of students to provide training in key employability skills. We can advise on suitable workshop topics. Trinity’s Guided Reflection Tool encourages students to reflect on the graduate attributes they are developing.

Giving a guest lecture

Academic Schools welcome guest lecturers from organisations where the specialist area of the organisation's work is relevant to the programmes within the School. Such lectures give insight into the challenges and opportunities in that specific sector and can highlight what skills employers in that sector are looking for.

Offering a site visit

Academic Schools recognise that students can gain a practical insight into the workplace and how it operates though site visits and appreciate these opportunities.

Participating in Employer Forums and events

We run Employer Forums and events to seek employer views on 21st-century skills and the changing needs of the workplace across a broad range of employment sectors. These are used to inform our curriculum design and delivery where relevant to ensure they address contemporary work practices.

Invitations to these events will issue in advance so register with MyCareer to ensure we have your organisation profile and contact details.

Research collaboration

The Office of Corporate Partnership and Knowledge Exchange (OCPKE), part of Trinity Research and Innovation, works with industry and the business community to develop partnerships which enable industry to benefit from the world leading teaching, research and infrastructure within Trinity.
