A practical opportunity to network in a supportive academic environment

On the London Internship Program, you’ll engage with London as both a professional and a student, mixing with British, American and international students from day one and interning intern eight hours a day, three full days per week over several weeks during your time abroad. Your coursework is 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.

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.

  • Placement options include: Advertising; arts; business operations; film & television; accounting and entrepreneurship; hospitality; journalism; law; politics (including Parliament); marketing; non-governmental organizations; psychology; public relations; and theater. The Internship Placement Guide outlines more placement details.
  • As part of your Cornerstone 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 research paper 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!)
  • In addition to your placement and the Cornerstone 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 one of our partner institutions (tuition fees will vary): City, University of LondonGoldsmiths, University of LondonQueen Mary, University of London and London College of Fashion, University of the Arts, London.

The program exceeded my expectations and gave me great tools to help me build my career. I gained more knowledge in international relations and it led to me interning with a Senator back in the US and interviewing for positions in Washington DC. ”
