Summer 2017 Studentships

Last updated: 6 March 2017

The College receives many emails and other notifications regarding summer vacation placements and projects for undergraduates.  The majority of these are aimed at undergraduates studying STEM subjects but on occasion we do hear about internships for arts and social science students as well. Any notifications are listed below and we update the list as and when new information is received.  

The University Careers Service maintains a searchable database of vacation internships and placements (Raven required).

Undergraduates who undertake a studentship in Cambridge are eligible to apply for Long Vacation residence in College (see Awards, Grants and Prizes webpage, section 1.7)

Summer internships/scholarships will invariably ask students for one or two testimonials from referees. Please give your Tutors and Directors of Studies as much advance notice as possible to complete them.  Students should also be aware that in the College's experience, the larger the organisation/charity and the more formal the summer studentship scheme, the earlier the closing date tends to be.
