More about this module

Gaining an internship in London will help you develop future career plans as well as a route to achieving your dream job. You will be supported by a professional organisation with many years' experience of working with international students. They will support you fully in gaining a suitable internship opportunity prior to the start of the module.

You’ll also build on professional skills including workplace ethics, being a critical employee, health and safety in the workplace and setting personal goals. After you’ve completed the internship you’ll have the tools to be able to reflect on your experience, set career goals and decide if you need to undertake further study and/or work experience. 

Throughout this module you’ll attend a timetabled class one day each week and undertake 28 hours of scheduled work experience over the remaining four days of the week (112 hours in total). You’ll also be required to complete weekly timesheets with your employer to document the hours you’ve worked.

Teaching and assessment

Although the internship will mainly be based at a business in London, you’ll still attend timetabled weekly workshops at our Holloway campus. 

You’ll receive ongoing feedback and support, and will be assessed during the module through assessments. You will be required to write a 300 word report of your work based on your learning agreement, which will outline your goals for the internship. You’ll also be required to submit two reflective videos analysing the work environment, your personal development and next steps in your career planning.

Module fees

To take the internship module you must also take a summer school module from another session. The total cost of both of these modules combined is £3,500.
