Student Opportunities at ARM

What are you waiting for? Play your part in shaping the technology of tomorrow

Every year, we offer internship programs and placements to students at all stages of their university education. Interns join engineering teams across the business, worldwide, working alongside experts in the industry. There are also a variety of opportunities within our ever-growing IT function, and a smaller number available within our corporate functions such as HR, Marketing, Legal and Finance.

As an Intern at ARM, you will work on real projects that have real impact, while also building on key skills for your future studies and employment, thus developing you as an engineer. We believe in developing talent for the future, and therefore aim to offer many of our interns a graduate position once they have finished their studies.

Working on interesting new projects is exciting but we also know how important it is to receive support. That’s why you will have regular 1 to 1 meetings with your line manager who will be able to offer ongoing support, feedback, and development opportunities. You will be given a certain amount of flexibility and freedom in how you decide to complete your project tasks. To get an idea of the kind of projects you could get involved in, take a look at the specific roles listed on our vacancies page.

Why Join ARM?

"I have always been interested in microprocessors and have known about ARM since secondary school from reading about CPU architecture. During both of my placements the work I did was real work; I had real problems to solve and the solutions I came up with were utilized after I left. It was exciting to see the technology that would become mainstream in about three years' time. Now I'm actually joining the company. I don't know what I'll be doing, but I suspect it will be related to my summer placement work. I think that there are very few companies where you can feel like you are at the cutting edge – where you know that the products your company produces are truly the best in the world. ARM is definitely one of those few companies."
