Through our relationship with BUNAC, we are proud to offer the Professional Internship Programme, which allows you the opportunity to intern full-time at an unpaid placement. The London Professional Internship Programme offers you a full-time, unpaid placement (25 to 35 hours a week). AES will source a suitable internship for you based on your degree, experience and future career plans. There is no requirement to study while you are in the UK. 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 & are exposed to as many aspects of a British business as possible. During your internship, you will also have a supervisor who will closely monitor your work.
The London Professional Internship Programme runs year-round. You should apply to AES at least 6 months before your anticipated internship start date. This is to allow enough time to source a suitable placement and for you to apply for your UK visa.
All non-UK passport holders will need to apply for a Tier 5 UK visa. AES works in conjunction with BUNAC who will act as your visa sponsor. For more information on the BUNAC Intern in Britain programme please see the BUNAC website – EU passport holders do not need a visa to intern in the UK.
If applicable, 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. Facilities 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 with a real London workday experience.
