Summer internships are available in a variety of fields, including business, communications, education, music, and technology. Interns can expect to do a combination of administrative assistance, event planning, project support, and research as part of their placements.Students enrolling in this program will stay in London for 7 weeks and take a course on professional development that frames an intensive work experience in one of the city's many established organisations or start-up spaces.
In their free time, students will be encouraged to visit galleries and museums, attend the theater and concerts, and enjoy the life of a Londoner for the summer. As part of the program, students will go on a weekend-long field trip to another part of the UK to explore how the themes they're working with in the capital play out around the country.
Please note that while the first 4 weeks of this program run concurrently with the London Summer Session, this internship cannot be combined with other coursework.
Undergraduate and graduate students in good academic standing at any accredited college or university are eligible to apply to this program*.
*Preference is given to rising Juniors and Seniors with a 3.0 gpa or higher.

BUA 400: The Global Workplace
(3 credits) undergraduate or graduate
The course is designed to guide students’ professional development during experience in the London workforce. Participation in the course will equip students with the practical skills needed to thrive in a globalized world of work—as well as the theoretical background and critical thinking abilities necessary to reflect on their position in that interconnected system.
During the course, students will be introduced to the global workplace, consider evolving careers in a changing world, identify ethical and practical issues of concern for businesses and workers, and refine their professional objectives and strategies.
Students registered for this class will seek and normally engage in an internship (work-based learning) in London. They will also interview professionals in fields relevant to them and pitch an event or campaign specific to their placement sector.
It is the student's responsibility to confirm with their home school/college that the course(s) taken as part of this program will satisfy their degree requirements.
Please note that U.S. and other non-EU students who want to intern in the UK must obtain a special Tier 4 visa prior to arrival. This process is complex and time-consuming, and costs approximately $500.
More information will be provided to students after acceptance.
