What students say

I made the move from Sydney to Edinburgh for a three-month internship at KAL.  I have gained invaluable experience in a number of areas that I hadn’t had prior knowledge in such as Marketing and Testing. The staff are friendly and approachable and take time out of their busy schedules to educate and answer any questions. There is a great culture, with many opportunities to socialise in and out of work. I would highly recommend applying for an internship at KAL, as you will gain invaluable experience for your career ahead of you.

My internship at KAL has totally exceeded all my expectations. There was huge opportunity to learn how software works in the real world, and I gained massive experience and now feel comfortable working in areas I admittedly found daunting  to begin with. This wouldn’t have been possible without the lovely people who work here and the support they provide their interns and colleagues.  KAL is a great place to work and learn and I would 100% recommend KAL to anybody!

During this 4 months at KAL I had opportunity to work on challenging and interesting projects. I have met fantastic, friendly and skilled people that helped me to increase my skills and confidence. KAL gave me an opportunity to continue developing my passion and I could work with technologies that I like most. I am also glad that I have been offered a permanent position that I have accepted.

Informatics Football (sponsored by KAL) has been a prominent part of my life since I joined in my first year of university. Initially taking part in 11-a-side and 5-a-side games, Later, I was given a role within managteam that has just won the intra-mural league. More recently I have been given captaincy in the Futsal team, an exciting new prospect for the Infos where we get to play beyond a University-context and into a city-wide league.
