Oxford University Micro-internship Programme

Published on: 20/02/2019

Oxford University are launching a new Micro-Internship Programme for research staff and are looking for host employers. 


The University of Oxford is excited to announce the launch of a new Micro-Internship Programme for research staff and we would like to invite you to become a host organisation.


Micro-internships are 2-5 day voluntary work experience placements facilitated by the University of Oxford. They are designed to give university employed research staff an opportunity to further develop key employability skills and competencies such as commercial awareness, communication skills and problem solving, as well as provide an insight into your sector and organisation.


We are looking for all types of micro-opportunities that our research staff would find engaging and interesting. Please note that these placements do not have to be research based. In fact, the wider the variety of opportunities we get, the better. From consulting to science research, from higher education to communications and marketing; if you have an opportunity that you feel would make a good micro-internship, then we would love to hear from you!


What are the benefits of hosting a micro-internship?

  • Micro-Internships are a great way to promote your organisation to our students and research staff
  • They help develop a direct link between your organisation and Oxford University
  • The Internship Office takes responsibility for advertising the micro-internships and for the administration of applications
  • 99% of organisations participating in the academic year 2017/18 would recommend the Micro-Internship Programme to other organisations


When will the placements take place?

The placement dates are Monday 3rd - Friday 7th June 2019 and/or Monday 10th–Friday 14th June 2019.



Whilst micro-internships are voluntary, host organisations must reimburse students with local (within the relevant city) travel and lunch expenses on submission of receipts. For-profit hosts in Oxfordshire must reimburse travel within Oxfordshire. For-profit hosts in London must reimburse students with an Oxford-London week bus pass (approx. £60). All expenses are reimbursed on submission of receipts.


For more details on micro-internships please see our website: http://www.careers.ox.ac.uk/micro-internships-employer-info/


How to sign up

The deadline for submitting a proposal to the scheme is Friday 8 March.


If you are potentially interested (or have any questions), please do get in touch by replying to this email and we will send details of how to sign up (research-internships@careers.ox.ac.uk).
