Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust Psychology Graduate Internships

An internship is where a psychology graduate undertakes voluntary work to gain relevant professional experience in order to further their career.

We know that it can be hard to get started on a career in applied psychology and that one of the bottlenecks is access to suitable experience. As a teaching trust we are addressing this by offering co-ordinated opportunities for graduates to gain relevant experience in our services. And this isn’t just about helping you out: our service users benefit significantly from the quality enhancements to our activities that volunteer graduates can offer. 

We are regularly contacted by psychology graduates seeking relevant professional experience to assist them as they embark on careers in mental health. The psychology graduate internship programme offers a co-ordinated approach to this form of volunteering, aiming to ensure maximum equality of opportunity and that both we and the intern benefit from the arrangement.

The psychology graduate Internship programme provides a framework for psychology graduates to volunteer with teams for 1 to 3 days a week, for a period of 3 to 12 months. In return for your time, as an intern you will learn skills and gain experience which we hope will help support your career progression. 

We are excited to be able to offer over 30 high quality internships across Sussex. These positions support specific projects across our clinical, training, audit and research activities. For more details please read our psychology graduate internship presentation.

What is a psychology undergraduate placement?

A psychology undergraduate placement is for students who are between their 2nd and 3rd year of study. Students whilst on their placement are still enrolled on their psychology degree and are therefore supported by their student loans. These placements are organised in partnership with universities who require students to be on placement for a full academic year (starting in October) and be at work at least 4 days per week.
