Thank you for your email. You have received this standard reply because you do not seem to have read the advice linked to my home page. If you had read that advice, you would have started your email with the sentence "I have read the advice linked to your home page about applying for internships".

In any case, thank you for your interest in Cambridge University, and/or Computer Science, and/or Human-Computer Interaction. I would also have been pleased to learn of your interest in my own research areas, if your email had made any reference to this.

Nevertheless, if you do have an interest in my own research area, would like to carry out research in this area yourself, speak and write good English, and have an excellent academic track record from a leading university in your own country, I would be pleased to receive an application for a place on the Cambridge master's programme in Advanced Computer Science. Application details can be found here:

With regard to your request for an internship, the UROP summer internship programme in Cambridge is restricted to students who are already registered for degrees in Cambridge.

If you wish to pursue opportunities in Cambridge (or elsewhere) any further, I have also provided more general advice in the page "Applying to work with Alan Blackwell"

Best wishes, Alan Blackwell
