Google's Inside Look Program for Computer Science Students


The Inside Look program brings together computer science students from all over Europe, the Middle East and Africa, to connect virtually over their passion for technology and a desire to learn more about life in a tech role at Google.

We're excited to invite students graduating later than August 2021, studying computer science or a related subject, to apply for Inside Look. The program has two elements: Inside Look Goes Digital on 27th and 28th August which is a two-day immersive virtual program, held on Google Meet, for top applicants, and Inside Look: YouTube Live! on 21 September for all applicants.

Selected attendees will be invited to join Inside Look Goes Digital; an immersive two-day virtual program, including tech talks, panels, technical interview practice, fun social activities, and — in true Google fashion — the chance to get your hands on some Google freebies, delivered directly to you at home!

While we are unable to host every applicant at Inside Look, we’ll also be holding Inside Look: YouTube Live on 21st September, where all applicants will be invited to hear from Google engineers on how they build products at scale, plus top tips and advice from our hiring team.

The Inside Look program is committed to supporting diversity at Google and the tech industry as a whole. Students who are members of any group that has been historically underrepresented in the tech industry are encouraged to apply!
