In cooperation with the University of Connecticut (UConn), we offer the AES London Semester Programme, which affords you the option to study and intern in London under School of Record (SoR) arrangements. Beginning in 2022, the programme will run for 15 weeks during the fall and spring semesters, allowing you to gain practical experience while earning academic credit. All majors are eligible for the programme. There will additionally be an eight-week summer session option.
You will undertake an unpaid internship for up to 20 hours a week, alongside a weekly work placement seminar. We generally work with medium to small-sized companies as in our experience, smaller companies can offer a more hands-on experience for you. We will ensure that all placements follow a learning agreement so that you are able to gain a variety of skills and be exposed to as many aspects of a British business as possible. You will have a supervisor who will closely monitor your work. AES only works with organisations that are able to offer one to one support for their interns.
In addition, programme participants will enrol in three classes under the AES/UConn cooperative agreement. Students will choose from a selection of UConn courses from within the following subject areas:

Students are housed in friendly and secure neighbourhoods in central London (Zone 1 or 2). All flats have a full kitchen and lounge area, with 1, 2 or 3 bedrooms which accommodate between three and eight interns, depending on the number of bedrooms. The flats include weekly cleaning and internet access. Although conveniently located near a variety of attractions and shopping, students may need to commute to their internship site. This provides interns a real London workday experience.
