Application process

- Application is done directly to UNITECH via their portal on the UNITECH website. Application deadline is 1st February 2017.

- In January, there will be an information session giving guidance on the application form and assessment centre.

- Shortlisted applicants will be invited to an assessment centre on 1st March 2017 - this is run in Trinity and assessed by representatives from the corporate partners. It comprises of an interview, presentation and group discussions. Applicants are ranked based on their performance. All those above a threshold mark are eligible to participate. The top 10 are selected to participate in the programme.

- University choices are allocated by UNITECH centrally (based on the top 3 choices students included in their original application form). Students apply for internship after they start the programme.


A travel grant is available for all Unitech students. In the second semester of the year, students take part in a paid internship programme with one of the programme’s industry partners. Erasmus grants are also available for both the student semester (study grant) and the internship semester (traineeship grant).
