Immersive Internship Program in London

Ready to combine global travel with career-boosting experiences? Our internships do exactly that.

And where better for a UK work placement than London’s booming business scene? From start-ups to multinationals, this city teems with opportunities in finance & consulting, theatre, entrepreneurship, law, and more.

As it covers over 600 square miles, most people commute to work in London by tube (subway), train, bus and bicycle. Or if you’re lucky, river bus!

The UK occasionally has a four-seasons-in-a-day vibe, but each season brings its own sunny or snowy delights. Living-wise, there’s something for every budget, plus endless cultural treats to savor beyond work.

“The City seems so much more in earnest: its business, its rush, its roar are such serious things, sights and sounds. The City is getting its living – the West-End but enjoying its pleasure.”
– Charlotte Bronte, Vilette, 1853
