Some fantastic work from Oxford micro-interns

Blogged by Rosanna Mills on 11/06/2018.

If you’re curious to find out what some of our interns get up to on our programmes, then read on!

Last term, through the Micro-Internship Programme, we had a few students completing work experience at Undergraduate Admissions & Outreach at Oxford University and also the Royal Society of Tropical Medicine & Hygiene. Two students at Undergraduate Admissions were tasked with creating an Oxplore – the Home of Big Questions – live stream, and their topic was ‘Should you believe the history books?’. As you can imagine, this big question opens up a whole host of conversations, and you can hear the thoughts and discussion of three academics in this video.

Through their micro-internship at the RSTMH, one student has had a blog published entitled ‘Malaria: a reflection from the past, a gaze into the future’. The blog focuses on the RSTMH malaria-related journal articles to mark World Malaria Day. This fascinating read looks at anti-malarial drug resistance, malaria and pregnancy, and more.

Thanks to these students for their brilliant work! If you’ve participated in our internship programmes recently and would like to share anything with us, we’d love to hear! Just email us at
