Build your skills and experience

“Here, what you contribute to a project is as important as what anyone else on the team would contribute.” Pushkar Mishra, former intern During your 12 week internship, you’ll find out what it’s like to work in an industrial research lab and learn from world-leading researchers and engineers who are invested in helping you.

Build valuable relationships

“I feel like in the future if I needed my advisors and collaborators here, I could casually drop them an email – that’s pretty cool.” Konstantinos Kamnitsas, former intern You will be an important part of a team who want you to get the best out of your internship and will take the time to help you and discuss your ideas. You can also explore other subjects and opportunities through a personal mentor, hackathons and more.

Make a difference

“The opportunity to work on projects that are technically interesting and able to impact millions of users is the best part.” Anna Thomas, former intern Our interns have the opportunity to make significant contributions to work that could go on to impact Microsoft products. Our mission is to empower every person and every organisation on the planet to achieve more, and you can be part of that.

Have fun

“Not only do you meet many interesting people, you can enjoy the rich history of the city, outdoor activities and events.” Katja Kevic, former intern and post doc researcher We hold a number of events and activities during the Summer to enable you to get to know others while enjoying what Cambridge has to offer.

Come as you are and do what you love

“It’s a really cool mix of thinking and having fun. You’re surrounded by really smart people, who you don’t expect to be so humble and kind to you.” Nadeen Gebara, former intern Microsoft is committed to supporting people in their personal and professional growth. We value inclusiveness and diversity, and work to ensure our interns feel valued, respected and encouraged.

Competitive pay and the opportunity to build your career with Microsoft

We offer a competitive salary, an accommodation allowance, free beverages and subsidised meals. Many of our interns have gone on to get full-time positions here or at other Microsoft locations.
