Research Internships

Each year the MWW Research Association offers two research internships to international humanities students at each of its three partner institutions. Established in cooperation between its three affiliated institutions and the University of Oxford, the programme has since been expanded and now offers placements to students from all around the world.

The programme aims to promote the international exchange of knowledge and offer advanced students of the humanities the opportunity to become acquainted with the broad spectrum of activities in a modern non-university research library, archive or museum in Germany. During their several-week-long internships, students gain experience in the areas of digitalisation, acquisition, cataloguing, manuscripts, restoration, exhibitions and public relations, while deepening their knowledge of German language and culture.

The call for applications in the research internship programme for international students, along with detailed information on its thematic orientation and application modalities, is published at the beginning of each year. The call for applications for students at Oxford University is issued and processed by the University’s Careers Service.
