Internships in Oxford Colleges and Departments
Information for setting up internships
Many University of Oxford departments and colleges have set up successful internships through our internship programmes.
Before you set up an internship
If you are a representative from a department or college of the University of Oxford, it is your responsibility to consult the employment guidance for setting up internships within departments, as set out by the University.
For information on the difference between interns and volunteers, please see the University's policy on using volunteers to carry out work.
