NDM Summer Internship Programme 2016

Please note that the application process for Summer 2016 has now closed. Information regarding the 2017 process will be added to this website in early 2017.

The Nuffield Department of Medicine offers opportunities for summer internships to undergraduate and Masters students from some of our key collaborating countries. We currently offer several fully-funded awards to students from China, Japan, Mexico and Brazil. You will get the opportunity to work in a laboratory environment with an Oxford University Principal Investigator (PI) and their team in the Nuffield Department of Clinical Medicine for a period of approximately eight weeks. You will also get the opportunity to live in Oxford – one of the most beautiful and historic cities in the UK.


Some previous interns on this scheme have gone on to successfully apply for fully-funded places on our DPhil (PhD) in Clinical Medicine programme (the NDM Prize Studentship).

Read about our summer of 2014 internship event and take a look at the internship podcast to learn about the experience of three of the 2012 interns.

Selection Criteria

Our summer internships are open to outstanding students about to enter the final year of their undergraduate science degree or final year of a Masters degree in the biological or medical sciences. You are welcome to contact one of our Principal Investigators (PIs) with whom you are interested in working, but it is not compulsory to contact them before you apply. Please refer to the list of NDM supervisors who are interested in hosting a summer intern.
