Microsoft Student Partner Programme – Student applications open to 31st July 09

Our colleagues in the UK Academic team (who work with academic departments in STEM-D at universities across the UK) have just announced that students can apply for next year’s Microsoft Student Partner scheme.

Here’s the details:

What are Microsoft Student Partners (MSPs)?

Microsoft Student Partners are some of the brightest, most innovative student technology enthusiasts who are currently studying at a university in the UK.

What is Microsoft Student Partner Programme?

The MSPs are part of a one year programme which is designed to help students get the most out of Microsoft tools and technologies. MSPs will work in partnership with Microsoft to reach out to technical students across the UK – helping at Microsoft events, running events on campus for students to attend, or contributing to the blogosphere or twitter chatter about the coolest technologies around. The MSP programme develops skills and gives students a head start in the ‘real world’ once they graduate and enter industry. It’s a great way for technology enthusiasts to become more engaged with the world of technology and MSPs have so many fantastic opportunities to develop their passion for technology.

Where can you find a Microsoft Student Partner (MSP)?

For events coming to your campus keep in touch with your MSP, email the Academic Marketing Team on if you have any questions or sign up to the studentzine newsletter.

What's involved?

MSPs will benefit from exclusive events and offers throughout the year and will have the chance to work closely with Microsoft throughout their time on the programme. MSPs will be involved in presentations and demonstrations of the latest technologies and develop their skills and interest areas through developing for fun. So basically it’s about having fun with your passion for technology!
