Program Description:
London landscape 
 
The LONDON INTERNSHIP PROGRAM is one of our most popular destinations.  Interning in this vibrant city will give you a lifetime of experiences and memories and will certainly be the highlight of your Resume/CV as you embark on your chosen career.  Participants will undertake a full-time unpaid placement, leaving your weekends free for travel to other parts of the UK and Europe.  We have a placement coordinator in London that will be there for you throughout your stay and conduct your orientation.  We can arrange housing for you if you wish.
This program allows U.S. students and recent graduates, as well as international students, to intern in the UK for up to 12 months. US students will be required to apply for special visa sponsorship through BUNAC.  

What Do I Do On This Program?

London Circle

Your internship placement will be customized to you and your goals in your chosen field.  Your resume/CV and cover letter (describing the types of internship placements you would like and the skills you wish to work on during the program) are used to search for your placement.  Our placement coordinators work with a large variety of companies and the organization you are placed with will be determined by many factors including company needs along with your education, experience and background.  

Are placements paid?

No, all internship placements in London are unpaid.

What hours will I be interning? 

Internship hours will be full time, 40 hours per week, generally 9am - 6pm, Monday through Friday.  Depending on your field of study and placement received, your hours may differ.  You may request a less than full time placement if you wish.

Housing is dependent upon availability and cost varies by Zone.  Zone 1 is central London and costs a bit more but is in the heart of the city.  It will be secured only after your placement is confirmed and the housing payment has been received. Single rooms can be requested (there is an additional fee for single rooms) but there is no guarantee one will be available.  There is no guarantee on the number of people sharing the unit, just your room.  You can request a zone 2 or 3 housing placement to save some money but your commute will be longer.

Testimonials

"My time here has been INCREDIBLE! Work alone has been a wonderful experience. I've been fully trained as a clinic coordinator, operating as one of the staff. this has given me an in depth look at how the administration side of the hospital runs, which in turn exposes me to the effects of the NHS on the hospital's workings. I've also been able to follow doctors on the clinic rotations and even.. observe surgeries!! one of them i even scrubbed in on!! now i've seen many c-sections, live births and post-birth repairs.  I still have couple more to come so .. yay! with my dream of being a surgeon, this is truly inspiring." - Kiyoshi H.

“I'm just writing to let you know that I completed my internship and I have been enjoying my 'tourist' time here in London.  It was an amazing experience and I have really grown so much from it.  I would definitely recommend this program to others looking for a new learning experience.  I just wanted to thank you for assisting me so much through this entire process and providing support when I needed it. Many Thanks. :)” -C. Davis
