Roles & responsibilities

Cyber Insights Summer School

With lectures, workshops and practical learning opportunities, you’ll get real insights into how we use innovative technologies. And you’ll be supported the whole time. If you show us real passion and dedication, we might offer you another summer placement - or even a job. On this ten-week course, you’ll also receive £300 per week and free accommodation.

Maths and Cryptography Summer Programme

In just nine weeks, you’ll stretch and develop your maths research skills and work alongside our experts on problems that have genuine practical importance. You’ll have the chance to do everything from investigating cryptographic algorithms and assessing application and protocol security, to developing mathematical techniques and analysing data sets.

Student Scheme for Technologists

This scheme gives you the opportunity to build your technical skills and meet other like-minded students. Our roles span a range of areas, including research, engineering and computer network operations. You’ll take on university-delivered classroom and lab education, along with technical training and real projects.

Summer Language Talent Programme

Our skilled Language Analysts will help you make the most of your Mandarin, Persian or Turkish language skills. You’ll get to experience some of the technical and analytical tools we use and get stuck into our projects. With plenty of support, you’ll draft intelligence reports, translate foreign language material and deliver briefs.
