The London Internship Program is designed to engage you completely in the life of the city, exploring numerous topics with a strong emphasis on your location.

You can also take courses at a number of partner institutions to complement your Arcadia courses. We invite you to peruse the syllabi on this page and make your selections in your student portal.
