About the Crankstart Internship Programme
As a Crankstart Scholar you are encouraged to gain work experience during your time at Oxford, and funding and support are available to help you to 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.
What we offer
The Crankstart Internship Programme is facilitated by the Internship Office. The features of the Programme include:
Exclusive internships just for Crankstart Scholars – over 100 opportunities were offered exclusively in 2018-19
- A weekly bulletin highlighting internships and career opportunities as well as events of interest/available to Scholars
- Unlimited one-to-one CV & Internship Advice Sessions, with dedicated Crankstart Programme staff
- Access to funds to support unpaid/poorly paid work experience and research placements
- A Careers Mentoring Programme for Crankstart Scholars interested in having a mentor in a profession of their interest. See our information on the Crankstart Careers Mentoring Programme.
If you have any questions about the Programme and/or any of its features, please email email@example.com.
The Internship Office is advertising both remote internships (which can be undertaken from any location) and in-person internships (which are undertaken at the employer’s premises). While there are currently significant travel restrictions around the world we are hopeful that some of these might start easing by the summer. However, in-person internships can only go ahead if all relevant restrictions have been lifted. It is essential that interns regularly check the Foreign Office website, as well as local guidance on Covid-19 restrictions to ensure the internship can be undertaken. This is particularly important if you have applied for, or accepted, an internship outside of your country of residency. While we are currently facilitating internships in all countries, we may, in due course, have to formally withdraw internships from the programme if the location in which they are due to be undertaken continue to pose significant health and travel risks.
If you are an employer interested in offering an internship to Crankstart Scholars or other students at Oxford, please see our Information for Employers.
