The St John's Innovation Internship scheme, which was launched in 2016, will provide again this year the opportunity to current Undergraduate and Master's students in the College to undertake an internship at one of the partner companies.
Two placements will be available for Long Vacation 2018 and the internships will last eight weeks (precise dates will be decided in conjunction with the interns).
The interns will receive free accommodation in College, and a living allowance, provided by the College, of £1,000 per month.
The internships (up to 40 hours per week) will be held at one of the partner companies. Most partner companies are based at St John's Innovation Centre and receive weekly mentoring sessions from Mr David Gill, Director of the Centre.
For summer 2018, there are four companies which offer intern positions within the scheme. Please click on the links below to find out more about the companies and the projects.
The application procedure starts on Wednesday 16th May and the deadline for applications will be on Monday 28th May at 9am.
Students who wish to apply will be asked to:
(i) write a personal statement for the College and state which company / project they are interested in (they can select all 3 projects as long as they state them in an order of preference) and how the internship would benefit their personal and academic development,
(ii) enclose their CV (including A level and Exams results), and
(iii) enclose a cover letter about the project and their suitability for it. If they are interested in more than one projects, they may wish to write separate cover letters for each of them, as their cover letters will be sent to the company.
On the application form, there is a field about "Previous exchange experience" - please leave this blank as it is not applicable in your case.
Student Services would be happy to respond to informal enquiries and requests for information.
