Arcadia's challenging London Internship program combines real-world experience with courses which facilitate students' understanding of the global workplace. Whether you want to gain financial experience in a commodities brokerage; work in an auction house or at an advertising agency; explore non-profit management; or assist a British MP in the houses of Parliament, our internships consist of much more than mere observation or filing paperwork. In addition to your 3-day-a-week internship placement you will also write a substantial paper or complete an independent project.
While our internship program is not for the timid and will require good time management skills, the chance to work and study in London provides one of the best study abroad experiences available. You'll take part in British life and culture in ways that few students are able to, while also gaining valuable working experience. And you can earn a full semester's worth of credit.
