What are micro-internships? 

Micro-internships are short-term work experience placements (2-5 days), which take place at the end of each term and are full-time and voluntary. The placements are available exclusively to current, matriculated Oxford students.  All placements will be completed remotely from your home this March and are voluntary. 

Who can apply? 

Placements are open to all matriculated undergraduate and postgraduate students (both Taught and Research).  

What will you do?

The focus of the placement is to observe and assist with a notable project. There are a broad range of internships advertised through the programme across various sectors and involving many different skills. The project with which you assist may be self-contained or form part of a larger, on-going project – sometimes this may even be a project begun by previous Oxford interns.  

How to apply?

Simply sign-in to CareerConnect to see what’s on offer this March. Remember, you can make up to two applications by midday, Monday 1 February.
