The Internship Programme provides access to hundreds of summer internships opportunities. They are offered by our international alumni, by multi-national corporations, by world-leading NGOs, by cutting-edge research institutions and many other organisations, and all are exclusively available to Oxford University students.
Since the programme’s inception students have undertaken internships in over 30 countries and have gained valuable work experience while travelling to exciting and exotic locations. The Internship Programme also gives you the chance to explore work experience options in a variety of sectors in the UK.The programme is open to all current matriculated (ie. not visiting) Oxford University students, undergraduates and postgraduates, including those in their final year of study.
The internships are advertised from the beginning of Hilary term each year.
Although every internship is unique, we try to ensure that they provide the following common elements:
Full-time work for 4-12 weeks during the summer vacation
A defined project, which creates real value for the host organisation and a valuable learning experience for the student
Interaction with an assigned supervisor or mentor within the host organisation
A stipend, or some assistance with travel or accommodation
Payment at the national minimal wage or better, if the internship is in the UK, and in the for-profit sector
An international experience or access to an internship placement in the UK that is not readily available through alternative internship programmes
