Your Host City: London

Shakespeare’s Globe Theater rests humbly in the theater district among trendy restaurants. Modern sensibility spills beyond the walls of the Tate Modern (a museum that was once a power plant) and onto the futuristic Millennium Bridge, a stark contrast to the traditions of Westminster and Buckingham Palace. More than 250 languages are spoken here in the capital of the United Kingdom, making London the most linguistically diverse city in the world. In addition, London is at the cutting-edge of the arts scene and provides access to music, fashion, museums, comedy, and theater.


Academics

Our CIEE Summer Global Internship programs combine a full-time internship with an integrated academic seminar to provide professional exploration and specific skills development. You’ll learn to contextualize real-world experience while learning about local business culture, intercultural communication, professional development, and linkages between local and global industry trends.

You’ll be guaranteed an unpaid internship placement at a local business or organization, where you’ll work up to 30 hours a week. CIEE will work with you to find the closest placement match between your professional and personal goals with what’s available in London.

You will be placed in an internship within your sector but the final placement site is dependent upon which company selects you. Having an international internship experience is a wonderful addition to your resume. By paying the program deposit students are acknowledging their commitment to this professional experience. CIEE will work closely with business partners and organizations to arrange a placement within your chosen field. However, placement within a specific organization is never guaranteed, nor is it reason to be released from the parameters of the withdrawal policy.

Students interning in London are placed with companies ranging from innovative start-ups to global organizations, multinationals, and NGOs in a variety of industry sectors.
