Cambridge Research Masterclass & Internship Programme

7 weeks

Besides teaching and mentoring interns, academics also put great effort into their research projects and working in their laboratories. Because of the large amount of work, research groups usually recruit research assistants to support them and contribute in many ways to the research projects.

The Cambridge Centre for the Integration of Science, Technology and Culture (CCISTC) of the Department of Psychology, University of Cambridge and Maxer Education Institute are proud to collaborate with some of the major research groups, professors and scholars at the University of Cambridge to provide distance internship opportunities in various research areas to undergraduate and postgraduate interns. Through the 7-week internship, interns will be able to participate in a part of the research project as an intern and learn new skills from the Cambridge academics via our online learning system.

Outstanding interns with a strong academic background may also have a chance to be selected by the Cambridge scholars to meet and discuss further work and collaboration opportunity after the internship.


Participation in the internship program is open to undergraduate and postgraduate interns from all over the world who are looking for:

  • Internship placement

  • A final year project/research topic as their university assignment

  • Academic Reference
