Program Information:

Intern in London offers an 8-week summer internship in England's fascinating capital. Participate in London's work life through an internship that complements your academic concentration and unique personal goals! The program combines work and professional development with cultural excursions: each week, you will intern for 20 hours and be involved in seminars, lectures, and excursions for another 20 hours.

Here are some things to expect while on this unique program:
  • Hands-on, custom internship in London – With a vast range of fields to choose from, you’ll find the perfect internship for your skills and interests and get the skills you need to enter the global marketplace.
