Internship

Summer is internship time at TNG and we were happy to welcome 18 interns with ten different nationalities and from six different universities in June, July and August.

Many students joined us from the United Kingdom. This is partly due to our partnership with the universities of Oxford and Cambridge. In 2019 we were named Gold Standard Internship Host by the University of Oxford, due to the very good co-operation.
