IES Internships London Summer – Internship

IES Abroad

Explore the impact of Britain on Western culture, including art, literature, finance, and politics when you intern in London.

Our program guarantees an internship placement to help you develop professional skills that will jump-start your career and make you competitive in today’s job market. IES Internships’ unpaid, academic internships will place you at a company or organization in a field such as business, media, and politics, while you experience all that London has to offer.

Before you depart, we work with you to perfect your CV and cover letter, hone your networking and interviewing skills, and prepare you for working in a new environment. You'll intern at a local business or organization, where you’ll work for at least 32 hours a week. You'll also enroll in a required 3- or 6-credit internship seminar with other IES interns, where you’ll gain context for your internship by examining workplace issues.

With IES Internships’ dedicated staff and international connections, you’ll have an internship that meets your goals. You’ll learn, and learn to stand out.
