Although it is not routine practice for EIS to offer work experience opportunities, in occasional circumstances where there is a lull in the sports calendar or there is some availability of suitable support, EIS has been able to provide short work experience placements for PhD and MSc level students providing there is a clear link to their course of study.
Please be aware that all work experience placements will be advertised when available and that we may not be able to respond to queries not related to an advertised opportunity.
