This presentation will focus on two key internship programmes offered at the University of Oxford:

The Internship Programme provides access to hundreds of summer internship opportunities. These are offered by our international alumni, by multi-national corporations, by world-leading NGOs, by cutting-edge research institutions and many other organisations. All are exclusively available to Oxford University students. Since the programme’s inception, students have undertaken internships in 40 countries and have gained valuable work experience while travelling to exciting and exotic locations. The Internship Programme also gives students the chance to explore work experience options in a variety of sectors in the UK.

The Micro-Internship Programme provides students with convenient, short-term work placements based in the UK which take place in ninth of every Oxford term. They are offered by organisations in Oxfordshire and in Greater London, and are voluntary, full time work experiences lasting between two and five days. Interns focus on the completion of a specific project, which is provided by the host organization alongside more general work shadowing. They are unpaid, although travel and lunch expenses will be covered. Placements can be research-based or professional and in a range of sectors, including think tanks, international development, consultancy, start-ups, charities, arts and heritage, or within the University (colleges, faculties and departments).

Both programmes are open to all current Oxford University students, undergraduates and postgraduates, including those in their final year of study.
