London is the world’s leading city for international finance and a major driver of the global economy. While London is well established as a leader in the arts, digital communications, and marketing, it’s also a major player in education, media, politics, not-for-profits, and the startup industry, making it the perfect location for a semester-long internship abroad.

Build a global network of professional contacts while taking in everything that London has to offer. Our program guarantees an unpaid, for-credit, 14-week internship placement of at least 32-40 hours a week in the field of your choice.
