Overview

As a Moritz-Heyman Scholar you are encouraged to gain work experience during your time at Oxford, and funding and support are available to help you do so. You can receive advice and guidance through the programme at any time with a view to undertaking a work placement in one of your vacations.

  • A dedicated point of contact to support Scholars with queries about internships

Finding an internship

Moritz-Heyman Exclusive Internships

We offer several internships in a variety of sectors exclusively to Moritz-Heyman Scholars, taking place in the Easter and Summer vacations. Employers have included Modern Antenna Pictures, Art Oxford, L’Oréal, Clifford Chance LLP, IntoUniversity, Aspire, and Mount Stuart Trust (Isle of Bute).

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 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, there is 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. The best way to do this is to email the Internship Office at mh-internships@careers.ox.ac.uk.

CV support

Having an up-to-date CV is a vital starting point to securing an internship. See our webpage on CVs for guidance.

Once you have used the resources to create a CV, we advise booking a 15 minute one-to-one appointment to get it checked by a Careers Adviser. You can arrange this on CareerConnect by selecting ‘I want to make an appointment’ and then choosing ‘A short discussion at the Careers Service with a Careers Adviser’.

You can also contact Reception on 01865 274646 and let them know that you are an MH Scholar, which will allow them to fast-track you, if necessary.

Funding

As a Moritz-Heyman scholar you can apply for funding to support your work-placement.  The awards vary from £200 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 Finance Officer at stacey.finch@careers.ox.ac.uk by 14th July 2018.

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.
