London is truly the center of it all when it comes to international industry, trade and business. It is also one of the most international and diverse urban centers in the world, and interns who choose London as their destination will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in this city’s cosmopolitan, worldly culture. Interns who want to experience life in the cultural, academic, arts, and entertainment capital of the world can do no better than an internship in London. The opportunities available in London are limitless, and one could spend an entire lifetime experiencing everything the city has to offer without ever seeing and doing it all. Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant’s tastes. Interns share meals with new friends or host family members, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area. World Endeavors provides a list of possible activities in the area and the World Endeavors local coordinator can also function as an ever present guide and ambassador to the area.
Imagine studying abroad in one of the most politically and religiously significant nations in the world! There is arguably no destination more diverse and historic than Israel. As the hub of the world’s monotheistic religions – Judaism, Islam, and Christianity– Israel offers countless opportunities to experience its rich history through preserved sacred sites, beautiful places of worship and abundant museums. At the same time, the small nation is also modern, urbanized and bustling. Known as the Start Up Nation, Israel’s technological sector is second only to Silicon Valley. This thriving sector drives the economy of Israel and paves the road for modern infrastructure, endless entertainment and whirling nightlife. The landscape of Israel is as diverse as its people. With pristine beaches along the Mediterranean coastline and snowcapped mountains in the north, opportunities arise for any type of adventure-seeker.
