Get out of the classroom and into the community!  Internships help students immerse in British culture, make life-long connections, and gain invaluable hands-on professional experience.

Note: Students are not permitted to intern or work (paid or unpaid) in the UK without a Student route visa (approximately $600USD), or unless students already had prior UK immigration permission that allows them to work (i.e. through the 'EU Settlement Scheme'). Please be aware that UK visa guidelines have changed beginning January 1, 2021. If you are unsure of your status, please contact OGS.

Academic Internships  

Students in the NYU London Academic Internship Program learn about British culture and professional life through internship placements in a wide range of industries.  This for-credit program includes two components:

  1. Guaranteed (minimum 16hr/week) internship placement
  2. Participation in the Internship Seminar and Fieldwork course

In order to enroll in this program, students must participate in a competitive application process.  Successful applicants are typically adaptable, flexible, goal-oriented, and open-minded.  Students accepted to the NYU London Academic Internship Program must be available for (2) full days between Monday and Thursday for their internship. 

While there is no cost to participate in the Academic Internship Program, students that participate are subject to a financial penalty should they withdraw from the program.

Internship Placements

NYU has partnered with EUSA, a non-profit organization, to identify custom placements for students in the academic internship program.  Unlike a traditional internship search, where students as job seekers are applying directly to organizations and weighing opportunities, EUSA conducts this entire process on participants' behalf.  EUSA weighs opportunities based on students' academic and professional goals, resulting in one placement. 

Please watch this short video to better understand the placement process:


Internship opportunities vary semester by semester; therefore, no specific placement list is available.  Placement opportunities reflect trends in the context of the UK job market.  Some sample placement industries include: Accounting, Advertising, Arts and Museums, Communications, Corporate Finance, Education, Fashion Marketing and PR, Hospitality, Journalism, Law, Marketing, Politics, Public Health, Theater Production, and more.  If you do not see your industry of interest or have questions, email
