The Summer Internship Programme - Employer Information
Hiring a full-time summer intern can be of value to any type of organisation.
You gain an additional member of staff at a relatively low cost who can be assigned to a specific project. In return the intern is exposed to new skills and work in a specific industry sector. Our students are bright, inquisitive, analytical, talented, hard working, energetic and ambitious and can provide you and your organisation with creative input and quality results.
Participating in The Summer Internship Programme is also a great way to promote your organisation among our students and to develop a direct link with Oxford University. Internships advertised through the Programme receive a huge amount of attention from both undergraduates and postgraduates and employers offering internships receive dedicated support from the Careers Service’s Internship Office.
The Summer Internship Programme 2021 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.
