  • Whether you like it or not in the end, whether you made a wrong decision to choose the company to work for in the summer, Don’t panic if you can’t find internship until March as there are many internships in summer with School, Southampton Excel, etcSummer between third and fourth year is the best time for applying as all companies are looking for students in penultimate year. If you want to learn about software or consolidating your technical knowledge then you should have an internship with Ship Science school especially in the second year.
