Summer Research Programme - For Students

As a student, participation in an Research Programme can make a significant contribution to your transferable skills, add to your CV and help gain understanding of the research environment – and perhaps help determine whether this career direction is or isn’t for you. The programmes are aimed at students in the early and middle years of their degree, and you must be based in Cambridge for the duration of the project, even if the project can be completed remotely.

There are two parallel summer internship programmes, the Gatsby Summer Research Programme for the Sciences and the King’s Summer Research Programme for the Arts and Humanities, but a single application process. For both programmes, you may apply to work on a project which has been devised by a supervisor, or you can work with a supervisor to devise your own project.

Applications for the King’s Summer Research Programmes will close on 21st March 2022, with decisions communicated to students by the end of March.
