Intern in London
Interning in the vibrant city of London will give you a lifetime of experiences and memories and will certainly be the highlight of your Resumé as you embark on your chosen career path.  You will intern with leading companies in London (matched to your field of study and background) and come home with tangible skills related to your degree.  Whether you’re working in Tech or Finance, we can find the right place for you.  Visit Buckingham Palace and the famous Tower of London…. Don’t forget that weekends are free for travel to other parts of the UK and Europe so you can visit Loch Ness in Scotland or hit the beaches in Spain after a hectic work week!

Visa
International Internships LLC will make every attempt to advise you of the process required for securing your visa but we do not know the process for citizens of every country. You are ultimately responsible for making sure you get the proper visa to enter the host country to partake in the program.  We make no guarantee regarding the timeliness of visa issuance or your entry clearance nor are we responsible for any problems arising at Immigration Control whether prior to or upon arrival in the host country due to citizenship or visa status.  You are encouraged to purchase refundable/changeable airline tickets or travel insurance if you think there may be an issue or delay in getting your visa.  European Union citizens applying for an internship in the E.U. will not have to secure an entry visa for their program.  Non-U.S. citizens are eligible to participate in any program but may have additional visa issues to contend with depending on their country of origin/ citizenship. Please note that our refund policies are the same if you are denied a visa and have to withdraw from the program. Please visit the BUNAC Intern in Britain site for full program and visa details.

US Applicants & International Students 
US applicants and international students obtaining a degree from a 4-year institution must apply for BUNAC's Intern in Britain program in order to obtain visa sponsorship.  Please note that BUNAC's program only gives you sponsorship to obtain the visa, it does not assist with internship placements or housing.  Once you have visa sponsorship from BUNAC, you will need to apply to obtain the actual visa through the UK Border Agency website.  The visa process can only begin AFTER the placement has been confirmed using our services.  We will provide you with the documentation you need confirming your placement.

Insurance
You will need adequate medical and accident insurance coverage for the full duration of your stay in the UK. BUNAC has a comprehensive and tailor-made travel and medical policy which has been developed exclusively for BUNAC Intern in Britain participants (www.compassbenefits.com/bunac). Participants who already have acceptable insurance of $500,000 medical coverage or higher and repatriation of remains (one plan that includes both) must provide a copy of their policy with the application for approval by BUNAC. BUNAC Insurance can be purchased for $360 (6-month policy). For more information on insurance requirements and to purchase a BUNAC Insurance policy, please visit the BUNAC Insurance Page.

Testimonials

Girls in front of London Eye

"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 a 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
