FALL AND SPRING SEMESTER INTERNSHIPS
Mandatory morning and afternoon cuppa tea breaks will soon be your BFFs!
For the first seven weeks of this program, you will combine your choice FIE Key Course (British Life & Cultures, British Life & Business, British Life & Visual Media, or British Life & Europe) with two or three other selected elective courses. Perfect your elevator pitch as you interview at internship placements; land the three-days-per-week gig and then join your mates to jaunt around Europe on your mid-semester break. Round out the semester and dig deep by starting the reflective International Internship Course (IIC) in the program’s last six weeks.

Crisps or chips? Biscuits or cookies? Football or soccer?
Answer these (dare we say, heavy) questions — and many more — as you test out expat life during your summer internship in London.
