Finding an internship

Moritz-Heyman Exclusive Internships

We offer internships in a variety of sectors exclusively to Moritz-Heyman Scholars, taking place in the Christmas, Easter and Summer vacations. Employers have included the UN Volunteers Office, Antenna Pictures, Modern Art Oxford, L’Oréal, Clifford Chance LLP, Visa, Aspire, and CERN.

Moritz-Heyman Exclusive Internships are advertised on a rolling basis via the Moritz-Heyman Internship Programme Bulletins, which are sent to all scholars approximately once a week during term-time.

Help finding your own internship

We can help Moritz-Heyman scholars find work experience corresponding to your skills and interests.  This can be in any sector and for any duration, from a week’s work-shadowing to a three-month internship over the summer.  Your placement can take place in the UK or abroad.  We will assist you in identifying a suitable host organisation.

Getting ideas

The first part of this process is to identify the type of placement you would like to undertake. To start your research you can:

  • Book an appointment to see a Careers Adviser. Our careers advisers offer objective, confidential careers guidance based on your individual needs.  They can also check CVs and cover letters. Please let them know you are a Moritz-Heyman Scholar so that you can be fast-tracked if needed.
  • Look at different sectors to see what you might be interested in.
  • Keep an eye on the MH Internship Bulletin for offers of exclusive internships for scholars, as well as other careers opportunities and ideas.
  • Browse  the Summer Internship Programme  listings on CareerConnect for ideas (open from Hilary term).
  • Explore the Micro-Internship Programme, which offers short work placements in 9th Week of every term.
  • Search for an internship on our vacancy database CareerConnect, where you will find vacancies and internship programmes from national and international recruiters.

Following an internship

On completion of an internship found through the MH Internship Programme, you are committed to providing feedback on your experiences. This will comprise of a feedback form which is emailed out after the finish date. Considerable value is placed on the feedback as it helps to develop and improve the programme. If you have any queries please contact us: mh-internships@careers.ox.ac.uk.

The Internship Office

As part of the Moritz-Heyman Internship Programme, we have a dedicated point of contact in the Internship Office who can answer any queries you have about the programme or the Internship Office. We are happy to offer guidance and answer questions from making an application to reflecting on what you have gained from the experience. We can also answer questions on funding for internships, or booking a one to one session. The best way to do this is to email the Internship Office at mh-internships@careers.ox.ac.uk, or Phoebe Benfield, the Moritz-Heyman Internships and Mentoring Programme administrator directly at phoebe.benfield@careers.ox.ac.uk

One to one internship support

Moritz-Heyman scholars also have access to dedicated internship support from Dr Fiona Whitehouse, Internship Office Manager. During term-time, 30 minute sessions are run twice a week for MH scholars from the Careers Service. These are opportunities to discuss internships only, and can be arranged by booking on CareerConnect in the appointments section.

For more general careers advice, you can also book to see a Careers Adviser, again via CareerConnect.

Funding

As a Moritz-Heyman scholar you can apply for funding to support your work-placement.  The awards vary from £50 to £2,500 depending on the location of the internship, the remuneration and living arrangements.  Although there is no limit to the number of internship bursaries you can apply for through the Moritz-Heyman Internship Programme, priority is given to those Scholars who are making a first request for financial support and who have already approached their college about potential travel bursaries.  Please note that we will confirm your placement with the host organisation before a bursary is paid out.

Be aware that funding will not be allocated for fee-charging internship schemes.

To apply for a Moritz-Heyman Internship Bursary please complete the MH Internship Bursary form and send it to the Moritz-Heyman Internships and Mentoring Programme administrator at phoebe.benfield@careers.ox.ac.uk by 12th July 2019.

Please check the application requirements and deadline carefully.

Internships and volunteering

We are occasionally asked if an internship can be counted as volunteering. The short answer to this question is ‘no’. An unpaid internship, particularly if it is supported by a Moritz-Heyman Internship bursary, cannot be included in your volunteering hours. Please read the FAQs for further information.

The Student Consultancy can help you prove or improve a wide range of employability skills, some consultancy but also transferable skills including team work, communication, problem solving and business and customer awareness skills. These will be helpful in a huge range of future careers. Many of the students who take part actually do want to be a Management Consultant – which is great, but not a prerequisite! In other words, we don’t mind what you are studying as long as you have the right attitude and interest. Past TSC participants have ranged from 1st years to DPhils and from English to Economics students – with everything in between.

The Careers Service tries to match you to a client in a sector of interest – to provide experience for future applications. Whether you want a career in museums or marketing, or an insight into IT or charities, The Student Consultancy can help.

Civil Service Fast Stream Offer-holders panel: June 2018

Blogged by James Salas on 13/07/2018.

In 6th week Trinity Term, the Careers Service invited five Finalist who all held offers for the UK Civil Service (3x Fast Streamers; +1 Direct entry; +1 HMT Graduate programme) to talk about their experiences in the application and interview process, including their attendance of numerous assessment centres:

  • Fast Stream Assessment Centre (everyone does this one);
  • Economics FS;
  • Social Researchers FS;
  • FCO Diplomatic FS;
  • HMT graduate programme.

The Careers Service has a comprehensive written account of this presentation that is available to current students through the Careers Service’s Interview Database.

If you are considering an application for the civil service this autumn, expect positions to open from mid-August or early September, and to close in the 3rd week of October. Last year, all Fast Stream programmes, including the early and summer diversity internship programmes had the same early application deadline.

If you are well prepared, you should be able to navigate the early stages before term starts, which will mean you have ample time to prepare for each new phase. You can use the account of our offer-holders panel together with our Government and Public Sector briefing paper to get your bearings and make a start with your preparations. And remember, support from the Careers Service is available throughout the summer, wherever you are.

*Alumni cannot access our interview database. Any recent alumni considering applications to the Civil Service can request their own copy of the panel session by writing to reception@careers.ox.ac.uk with details of their College, Oxford Degree course and their year of completion.
