Each cycle of the Micro-Internship Programme is open to all matriculated students (undergraduate and postgraduate). The Summer Vacation cycle of the Micro-Internship Programme is also open to those students who have completed their courses in June/July of that academic year. Students can apply for a maximum of two micro-internships per cycle. During cycles where we run a second round, students can make an additional application.
Students will be required to submit the following as part of your application:
- a one-page Curriculum Vitae - This should be saved as Student Name – Employer name(CV) in PDF format. We require that you submit a one-page CV. Please be aware that if your CV runs over to two pages, only the first page will be sent with your application. For guidance on CV writing, please see our page on page on How to Draft a Standard CV
- A 300-word Personal Statement - Here you should outline your suitability for the internship in question. For guidance on writing your personal statement please see our page on How to Write Cover Letters.
Confirmation of submission - If your application has been uploaded correctly you should receive an automatic confirmation email from CareerConnect, and your application will appear on your CareerConnect dashboard. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that your application has been submitted successfully. If you do not receive a confirmation of submission within 3 hours, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Internship Office aims to make opportunities equally available to all current, matriculated Oxford students, regardless of race, gender or degree of disability.

I previously completed a micro-internship with an employer, can I apply to/undertake the same placement as part of the Micro-Internship Programme again?
No. Students are unable to repeat micro-internships with an employer as part of the Micro-Internship Programme – even if the micro-internship takes place in a different term or academic year.
Can I apply to/undertake a micro-internship with an employer who has hosted me as a micro-intern previously, if the project is different?
Yes, but only if the project is substantially different to the micro-internship you completed with them previously. Please note students can only undertake one micro-internship a term for a maximum of 5 days. Should the micro-internship be the same/similar to the one you completed with them previously, you are unable to apply to/undertake this as part of the Micro-Internship Programme.
If you are unsure on if the project is substantially different, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
