Depending on the project, the internship host will decide if your placement is to take place fully in person, fully remote or a hybrid of both. The internship host will reimburse you for reasonable travel and lunch expenses (on submission of receipt) for any days you are required to be physically present as part of the placement. Full details of what the host deems as reasonable can be found within each internship advert.
The Micro-Internship Programme runs four times a year - taking place at the end of each term, before the next academic year starts. The Micro-Internship Programme 2020/21 placement dates are as follows:
- Winter Vacation – 6-10 December OR 13-17 December 2021
- Spring Vacation – 14-18 March OR 21-25 March 2022
- Summer Vacation – 27 June-1 July OR 4-8 July 2022
Usually, micro-internships are full-time hours (for example - but not limited to - 9am-5pm) each day, although this is decided by the host and will be communicated to you before your placement. Some hosts offer flexible working hours, and this is usually stated in the advert. Therefore, please ensure before applying that you are available during the placement week. Please be aware of differing timezones when accepting a placement and make your micro-internship host aware as to avoid conflicting timezones.
