Opportunity, or free labor: Finding an internship

Internships, placements and work experience can conjure up different thoughts and feelings. The diverse discourse around these learning pathways extends to 'an amazing opportunity' to 'free labor and a waste of time'.

Money and meaning

The final week of summer is upon us. Although I’ll be missing the glory of summer days, it’s quite exciting that the university campus will be welcoming eager young minds into its halls again. It’s the start of a new academic year, we have new leadership with a new Vice-Chancellor at the helm, and there’s the promise of new beginnings which gives hope. There’s also Mad March and then looking forward to cooling nights, indulgent pasta, and winter.
