The Birkbeck London Semester Programme allows you to study and intern in London for 14 weeks during the fall & spring semesters, allowing you to gain practical experience while earning academic credit. All majors are eligible for the programme.
You will undertake an unpaid placement for up to 2.5 days a week and 4 work placement seminars that are spread across the 14 week semester. AES generally work with medium to small-sized companies. 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 enrol in two classes (modules) at Birkbeck, University of London. You can choose from approximately 10 different course options. Transcripts for these courses will be issued by Birkbeck.

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.
