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 a partner company over the summer.
Three placements will be available for Long Vacation 2021. The internships will be sponsored by the College and will last eight weeks. The precise dates will be decided between the companies and 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 a partner company. Most partner companies are based at the St John's Innovation Centre. Below is a list of the companies participating in the scheme in 2021, you may click on the links to find out more about the companies and their projects.
The online application system will open on Friday 12th March 2021 with an application deadline on Wednesday 31st March 2021.
Students who wish to apply are asked to:
(i) write a personal statement for the College and note which company / project they are interested in (they can select up to 3 projects in order of preference) and how the internship would benefit their personal and academic development;
(ii) enclose their CV (including A-level and University exams results); and
(iii) enclose a cover letter about their suitability for their project they are applying for. 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 shared with the companies offering the placements each student applies for.
On the online application form, there is a field about "Previous exchange experience" - please leave this blank as it is not relevant in your case. Student Services would be happy to respond to informal enquiries and requests for information. Successful students will be notified at the beginning of June.
