About the programme
The Virtual Internship Programme offers you a part time and unpaid internship with a London based company from the comfort of your own home, allowing you to gain experience in a particular field and understand how an organisation operates in the UK.
AES will source a suitable internship for you based on your degree programme, experience and future career plans. We generally work with medium to small-sized companies as, in our experience, smaller companies can offer a more hands-on opportunity for you. During your internship, you will also have a site supervisor, who will closely monitor your work and structure the virtual internship by setting learning goals and the activities/projects to achieve them. AES will provide you with all necessary support at your placement, in cooperation with the supervisor.
