Student Internships & Work Experience

Although a work placement doesn't form part of any of the three undergraduate Computer Science degrees at Oxford, there are lots of opportunities to get real-world experience. Many of our students use the long summer vacation to do work experience or an internship, either in the UK or abroad. The Department regularly receives and shares information on opportunities available, and the University's excellent Careers Service is on hand to help students find the right placement for them. Here are some examples of what our students have been up to recently.
