Summer Internships at Oxford University

Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford, which furthers the University’s objective of excellence in research, scholarship, and education by publishing worldwide.

About the role
We are offering the opportunity for recent graduates and final year students to apply for our Summer Internship scheme. The internship will last for eight consecutive weeks over the summer period. This will provide the opportunity for those interested in a career in publishing and business to gain valuable insights into a publishing house. It will also be a chance to experience work and life at a leading University Press.

The successful candidates will each work on a specific project for the eight week period. They will work within different departments supporting our marketing, editorial, rights, production and project teams. The projects cover a variety of areas from science to maths publishing and bilingual dictionaries to online products. The individual projects are listed on our Summer Internship web page.

The internship scheme is Oxford based and will start on 29 June 2015 and finish on 21 August 2015. Interviews for the internship will take place throughout April 2015.

The key objective of the internship scheme is to allow graduates to gain a range of valuable skills and work experience, which will in turn support them with future applications within the publishing industry.
