Summer Internship Programme

The Summer Internship Programme offers hundreds of global internships every year exclusively for Oxford students. Placements are 2-12 weeks in duration, and take place in the summer vacation (between the end of June and the end of September). The programme offers opportunities in a wide variety of industry sectors, in partnership with SMEs, charities, multi-national organisations, including many world-renowned organisations and companies. See our interactive feedback map for examples of the types of projects offered through the programme.

What are employers expected to provide?

• Employers agree to reserve a specified number of internships exclusively for Oxford students who apply through the programme.

• Hosts should provide a meaningful work project with adequate supervision from a mentor appointed within the organisation.

• Organisations in the for-profit sector are expected to pay minimum wage or above. Not-for-profit organisations should make a contribution towards the placement, such as accommodation for example.
 
This step by step guide to submitting an internship gives instructions on how to register, and how to post your Summer Internship Programme opportunity directly on to the system.
