Join our programmes

We run a variety of programmes for students to gain new skills and work experience. These include:

The Internship Programme

Our Internship Office sources unique summer work placements for Oxford students - in locations around the world. We organise hundreds of opportunities each year for the Internship Programme - from publishing internships in the USA to computing internships in India.


Our new Micro-Internship Programme gives you short project work in organisations around Oxford. All take place in ninth week of a term, so are perfect to fit into a busy vac!

The Student Consultancy

An innovative and unique programme, The Student Consultancy equips students with consulting skills to help local businesses, charities and community organisations. And it's not just for future consultants - it's a great way to get an insight into a range of sectors, and to develop employability skills.

Springboard for Women

Developed with the award-winning Springboard Consultancy for professional women, our Springboard programme is designed specifically for female students at Oxford - to boost your confidence and reach your aspirations.

Insight Programmes

If you're looking for an insight into a sector, we organise work shadowing opportunities - in Medicine, Policy, and Teaching. We also run a series of workshops to help you develop commercial awareness - Insight Into Business.
