London Summer Internship Program

London offers a vast resource for experience-based learning. The work environments available to interns cater to almost every major and include the various business sectors, not-for-profit, political, public sector and creative organizations. Through our internship course, including the placements and internship seminars, you will have the opportunity to build professional skills, increase industry knowledge and experience while working in a different culture and in a major global city.

Why do an Internship in London

British Life and Cultures Course Overview

It has been said that the US and UK are two countries divided by a common language. So what are the definitive cultural differences between these two nations? How do the British people define themselves in relation to their European neighbors and the rest of the world? How have historical, political, and artistic developments shaped the identity of this small island nation? This course serves as the anchor of a study program in London, offering students an opportunity to place what they are learning in their other courses into a larger, contemporary context.

Students will be empowered to appreciate more of what they observe during their stay in Britain. Students enrolled in this course will develop an understanding of the issues of this rapidly changing nation and the exciting effects this has on British identity, its relationship with Europe and the rest of the world. In addition to the traditional classroom experience, learning will be supplemented with guest speakers and guided visits to places of both historical and contemporary significance.

International Internship Course Overview

London internship placements, together with classroom seminars and written reflection, form the International Internship Course (IIC).

The Placement

We strongly believe that careful monitoring and individual support are crucial in arranging suitable and rewarding internships. Our Experiential Education Team works with each student individually from admission to the program to match their skills and background with an appropriate organization. The Team provides pre-departure and on-site support during the placement and internship process. IIC seminars allow for discussion, analysis, and academic reflection throughout your internship experience. Please note that all internships are unpaid and are for academic credit only.

The Seminars

In order to enhance and contextualize the internship experience, students participate in a variety of seminars designed to provide support to develop their understanding of the U.K. workplace and enable them you to make the most of their experience. Students will work with a faculty member and their peers to reflect upon the experience and exchange ideas.

Students will be assessed on:

  • Their ability to engage analytically with the internship experience;
  • Written assignments throughout the term;
  • A presentation and written final report about their development throughout the process.

By the end of the IIC students should be able to:

  • Understand general aspects of the UK sector in which they worked and have a high degree of understanding of the organization in which they were placed
  • Describe and reflect on their internship experience and the ways in which they have developed during the semester as well as be able to engage with intercultural issues that emerged
  • Connect readings and key class themes to their work experience.
