About the Program

Program Description

Gain marketable skills and first-hand experience in London business culture with an accredited international internship through the University of Westminster (WMN). Internships include an academic seminar component and help prepare you for the global marketplace by aligning with your academic and career goals. Designed for committed students majoring in relevant fields, this program enables you to enhance and develop transferrable skills that set you apart in the global job market. Past internships have been completed at charities, museums, PR firms, and small- and medium-sized businesses. Your internship will be complemented by courses from WMN's full course catalog. It's an ideal way to develop your international network in Europe's financial hub.

Program Structure

You'll enroll in 1 internship course that includes an academic seminar and an internship placement, and 2-3 elective courses. Your internship seminar meets for 36 seminar hours and you'll spend a minimum of 168 hours at your internship placement. Together, your seminar and internship placement are worth 4 credits. You may earn a total of 12-16 credits.

Courses meet at varying times during the week. Internship placements may take place Monday-Friday during typical business hours. The exact time and days of the week will be decided in conjunction with your host organization. Once your work schedule is set, there will be limited flexibility to modify it. Expect to spend 14 hours per week at your internship organization.

We strongly recommend that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are both limited in availability and competitive; employers give priority to those who submit early!

To qualify for an internship, you must have taken classes in a relevant discipline. The recruitment process will begin before your departure; the majority of internships require a Skype/telephone interview with the employer before placement is confirmed. All placements will be confirmed upon arrival and will each have their own set of internship guidelines for the position. Internships are competitive and determined on a first-come-first-serve basis.

If you wish to enroll in practical courses offered through the School of Media Art & Design at the Harrow campus, you must submit a portfolio for review consisting of slides, photographs, or digital images of your work, demonstrating your level and suitability for the course.

You’ll complete a Westminster Application Form indicating course selections and alternates before you leave for London. This will facilitate your pre-approval by the departments and/or lecturers for entry into your chosen courses. When selecting courses, make sure you are looking at the campus designation. Final course registration takes place during the first week of the program.

It is in your best interest to have multiple alternative courses approved by your home university prior to your departure due to course availabilities. Please consult with your academic advisor at your home university on credit pre-approval guidelines.
