A practical opportunity to network in a supportive academic environment

Placement options include: Advertising; arts; business operations; film & television; financial services; hospitality; journalism; law; politics (including parliament); marketing; non-governmental organizations; psychology and health services; public relations; and theater. The Placement Information and Field Guide outlines more placement details.

On the London Internship Program, you’ll engage with London as both a professional and a student. You’ll intern eight hours a day, three full days per week for 10 weeks, with coursework designed to complement your work experience and to reinforce your professional and academic interests. There are placements available in wide range of industries. This is a unique and affordable study abroad opportunity—if you want to build your resume, this is a great program option.

  • As part of your 4-credit core course, Work in Thought and Action, you’ll complete a substantial research paper, which allows you to make connections between academic study and your placement experience. This reflection will help you think about how your experience connects to your career aspirations. (This is a great writing sample for future graduate school and employment applications!)
  • If you’re interested in British or international politics and public policy, the Parliamentary Internship may be a good option. As a parliamentary intern, you will contribute to the everyday operations of important figures in British politics and develop an insider’s understanding of how the British legislature – the House of Commons and the House of Lords – make policy ideas into law.
  • Placements are arranged based on your interests, experience and goals. The Placement Information and Field Guide has full placement details.
  • In addition to your placement and the core course, you will enroll in three additional courses selected from a wide range of course offerings for the Arcadia in London program, with the option to enroll in courses at these partner institutions (tuition fees will vary):

If I hadn't taken that first leap of faith and boarded that flight to a foreign country, then I never would have gained the knowledge and skills that I have now. ”
