London is truly the center of it all when it comes to international industry, trade, and business. It is also one of the most international and diverse urban centers in the world, and interns who choose London as their destination will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in this city’s cosmopolitan, worldly culture. Those who want to experience life in the cultural, academic, artistic, and entertainment capital of the world can do no better than an internship in London. The opportunities available are limitless, and one could spend a lifetime experiencing what the city has to offer without ever seeing and doing it all. As one of the greatest economic and cultural centers in the world, interning in England provides participants with incredibly valuable work experience; not only will interns be properly trained in their field, but they will also learn how to work in significantly different environments.


England is a European nation, but it also maintains its own strong cultural identity. This is a country that has kindly shared The Beatles, Doctor Who, and Shakespeare with the rest of the world. Many of the world’s most influential people, organizations, and institutions call England home. Life in London is exhilarating and fast paced. Weekends offer a plethora of cultural events and activities, and, for many interns, the biggest challenge is choosing between so many exciting options. As a global capital for culture, business, entertainment, and even cuisine, London offers something for everyone. Interns in London live like locals, experiencing everything that life in this bustling international city has to offer.

I feel incredibly grateful. My experiences there were all positive, and the people I worked for really felt like family to me. I realize that at my age, I'm very lucky to be so well-traveled.

Do you want to earn academic credit for your international internship? Nearly half of World Endeavors participants earn credit while interning abroad. Many students are required to participate in an internship to fulfill a requirement for their degree program. World Endeavors works closely with students and their academic advisors to ensure that our program meets those requirements. If you don’t fall into that category there is another exciting option for you. Through our collaboration with University of California Berkeley, students can earn UC Berkeley credit by taking one of two online courses while interning abroad.University of California Berkeley
