The motivation behind the Grad22 platform started with a simple problem - how to get students at universities and other higher education institutions more real-world experience. Traditional internships cover only a fraction of the student body owing to their high overheads, including physical relocation requirements and lengthy application processes. These restrict participants from being matched with the most optimal opportunities by artificially limiting the programmes an applicant can consider, particularly affecting those from non-traditional backgrounds.

So our solution must meet several requirements:

  • ●  A non-invasive application and consideration procedure

  • ●  A matching system that can take the preferences of students and employers into


  • ●  Tooling and a workflow for remotely managing teams, projects and tasks

Employers and students create accounts detailing:

  • ●  Employers - available projects and budgets, preferences on participant education,

    experience and skills

  • ●  Students - skills, interests, experience

    Within a projects, roles are created to which a student can be assigned - e.g. “Frontend developer” with requirements of studying a Computer Science degree and basic javascript experience.
