Pearson offers internships to promising students and early-career researchers

Internships are open to MA and PhD students and post-doctoral researchers on the recommendation of their teachers/professors. The aim of the internships is to offer students and post-doctoral researchers hands-on experience in test development and applied linguistic second language research. They will work under the supervision and guidance of experienced Pearson staff and will get insight into real-life assessment issues and are likely to have the opportunity to work with existing large data-sets.

Internships may be taken up for 1 to 6 months and can be combined with dissertation work if appropriate.
