The London NERC DTP offers periodic funding for three-month internships for DTP students to work with a relevant non-academic organisation and gain experience in business, policy, or industry. These internships offer students the opportunity to gain valuable experience of engaging with end user partners and working outside of academia. Our associate partners may also fund their own internships, which will be advertised here.


  • Internships advertised here are open to London NERC DTP students only. See specific requirements for the funding call for details of cohort eligibility.
  • Internships are for 3 calendar months and must not cross academic years.
  • Internships are fully-funded including a student stipend and a £1000 contribution towards host expenses (unless otherwise stated).
