Gaining work experience during your studies is probably the single most important thing you can do to add employability value to your degree. Interning allows you:
Internship opportunities may come up through the Department’s contacts but you can also access support through King’s Careers and Employability. You can make an appointment with them to discuss ways of sourcing an opportunity proactively.
King’s Internships programmes source part-time and full-time paid internship opportunities open only to current King’s students and recent alumni.
King’s Global internships arrange overseas work placement during the summer in countries like Brazil, China, South Africa and the USA.

This is the ideal degree for students wanting to make a difference and improve health and wellbeing, both locally and globally. It gives you the opportunity to build up a range of transferable skills, including communication and literacy; listening and questioning; group work; debating/thinking on your feet; conducting rapid research; writing reports; problem-solving and time management; and individual study.
Additional key skills include: critical engagement with complex concepts concerning health, illness and biomedicine; explanation and analysis of the processes and relationships that underpin the social, cultural and political aspects of health, illness and medicine; and interdisciplinary and critical thinking.
These skills are valued by employers in all sectors. For example, accountancy requires candidates who can analyse and discuss complex data and information just as much as the World Health Organisation (WHO) does.
