More about this course

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 course.

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 course 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 course through assessments. You will be required to write a 1,000 word report of your work based 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.

Course fees

To take the internship course you must also take a summer school course from session one. The total cost of a course from session one and the internship module is £3,500.
