Digital Support Opportunity

Need some help with software engineering, digital media, web design, social media development in these difficult times?

Student Opportunities from University of Aberdeen and Edinburgh Napier University for those in the Creative Industries.

Interface, which matches up businesses with a Scottish university to carry out a project to help in some aspect of running your business, would like to make you aware of the following student opportunities. As these will be done digitally, location is no issue. There is no cost to you and very small businesses are eligible to apply.

In terms of expectation from a student project, we advise avoiding projects that are business- or time-critical due to the inexperience of many students of working in a professional context but if you have an interest in new ideas, a fresh approach and some speculative development and would otherwise struggle to attract internal resources and approval, these can be a rewarding undertaking.

There is a straightforward application process for each, and the universities will weigh up submitted applications in late November/early December to choose which projects are most suitable for a student/student group, and let you know if you’ve been successful. As these start in January, we suggest you apply as soon as possible.

All project proposals are reviewed by academic staff to check that the scope of the project is not too ambitious for the amount of time available. The details of the project will be discussed with you in advance of releasing them to students if there is any doubt about the scope.

If you are interested in any of these options, please contact Lorraine Thomson on M; 07789 912452.
