QProjects Summer

A meaningful summer work experience programme placing QMUL students in local charities.

Thinking about how to make the most of next summer?

QProjects Summer offers students exciting, flexible, work experience opportunities in a range of local charities. Participants become project leaders, delivering challenging projects that London-based charities might not otherwise have the time or skills to get done. Past projects have included developing a marketing campaign, data analysis, running healthcare workshops and evaluating projects.

Successful applicants will benefit from a training day to prepare them for their placement as well as a skills debrief with a Careers Consultant following the completion of the programme. Each project will give you the chance to gain (and showcase to future employers) a range of skills, some experience for your CV and the opportunity to network with people in the charity.


A major benefit of this programme is that it can be flexible to work around your summer plans. You will be expected to work for approximately 12 days in the charity, usually over the course of 3, 4, 6 or 12 weeks.


Applications for the programme will open in Spring 2018. Sign up to our mailing list here:
