The Bloomsbury Summer Programme allows you to study and intern in London for 8 weeks during the summer, 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, as well as 4 work placement seminars spread across the 8-week semester. We generally work with medium to small sized companies which in our experience, offers a more hands on experience for you. We will ensure that all placements follow a learning agreement, ensuring you are able to gain a variety of skills & exposure to as many aspects of British business as possible. During your internship, you will also have a supervisor who will closely monitor your work.
In addition, programme participants enrol in one class (module) at Birkbeck, University of London. You can choose from approximately 4 different course options. Transcripts for these courses will be issued by Birkbeck.
Application deadline: 13th March 2020
Programme dates: 1st June to 24th July 2020
