Read about former interns' experience on the Summer Internship Programme


Internships are listed by the country in which the employer is based, and the title clarifies whether the internship was remote working, if it took place in person or a mixture of both.

The Summer Internship Programme advertises hundreds of summer internship opportunities in locations across the globe, all exclusively available to current, matriculated Oxford University students. You can find out more about the programme on the Summer Internship Programme webpage.

You can also download and read the Summer Internship Programme Experience documents offline.

Since the programme’s inception, students have completed internships in over 40 countries, and have gained valuable work experience while travelling to exciting and exotic locations. The Summer Internship Programme also offers the chance to explore work experience options in a variety of sectors in the UK. The programme is open to all current, matriculated Oxford University students (both undergraduates and postgraduates), including those in their final year of study. Visiting students are not eligible to apply.

Internships can take place remotely, or in-person at the host employer's premises. These arrangements are considered carefully according to the circumstances surrounding each placement.

The internships are advertised on CareerConnect from the beginning of Hilary term each year. Find out more about the programme.
