The internship option in London is a combination of practical, hands-on experience and academic course work. Interns carry a reduced academic load during our longer term-time programmes while also spending approximately 16 hours per week in an internship placement.

We use a third party internship coordinator Kate Duffy to source internships and place suitable students. And Mary, in her role as Internship Seminar tutor, works closely with Kate and the interns themselves to ensure they get the most out of their experience (cross-cultural competency, marketing your study abroad experience in job interviews, improving resumes, discussing British office culture).

Students must arrange to receive academic credit for their internship with a faculty member on their home campus well in advance of the programme. Be aware that different home institutions have different requirements in terms of placement hours. If in doubt, drop us a line and we can help make sense of it!

GEO in London is a Registered Tier 4 Sponsor, and will provide committed students with Certificate of Acceptance for Study (CAS) in order for them to apply for a Tier 4 Visa, which legally allows them to embark on an internship. (Standard students who are not undertaking an internship do not need a pre-arranged Visa.)
