Intern Abroad in England - London
London is truly the center of it all when it comes to international industry, trade and business. It is also one of the most international and diverse urban centers in the world, and interns who choose London as their destination will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in this city's cosmopolitan, worldly culture. Interns who want to experience life in the cultural, academic, arts, and entertainment capital of the world can do no better than an internship in London. The opportunities available in London are limitless, and one could spend an entire lifetime experiencing everything the city has to offer without ever seeing and doing it all.
Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant's tastes. Interns share meals with new friends or host family members, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area. World Endeavors provides a list of possible activities in the area and the World Endeavors local coordinator can also function as an ever present guide and ambassador to the area.

Housing: World Endeavors interns in England live in shared apartments with shared bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, or with local host families in a single room. All housing options are located within walking distance of an Underground station for convenient access to everything London has to offer.
Dates: Internships are available year round, and each placement is customized for the participant. This means that World Endeavors interns can choose the start date and duration of their internship as well as the field. Due to holidays, traditional vacation schedules, and seasonal work availability, there might be better times than others to intern in a specific location or in a specific field. Our advisors work with interns to ensure that their timeframe works adequately with the internship site. This communication is key to creating a successful internship placement.
Please note: generally, the minimum program duration for interning in England is 2 months. Also, due to visa constraints, the maximum duration is 6 months. Contact World Endeavors if you would like to go for duration outside of this.
