London Internship Program, UK

May 24 - July 20, 2012
London, England
 
Marymount University, in partnership with the Foundation for International Education (FIE), offer an 8-week, London-based international internship whose goals are to develop professional and cultural skills and provide personal and career awareness.
 
This program offers a unique preprofessional, field-based experience coupled with academic analysis and reflection and provides an opportunity to experience working life in another country and challenges preconceived notions of culture and of the professional world.
 
An international internship should not be regarded as vocational or on-the-job training for a specific industry or career.
 
Internship students will begin their program with the British Life and Cultures class. Studying in another culture can be challenging for even the best students, so the British Life and Cultures course will help them contextualize their experience in London in a broad, academic manner. Students will begin their internship about a week into their program, splitting each week evenly between classwork and placement time.
 
Please note that all student internships are unpaid and are for academic credit only.
