London Summer Internship

Students who participate in the London Internship Program have the opportunity to gain valuable international professional experience in London while also completing an additional course for credit. Examples of the types of internships available include a focus on fashion, ministry, service, non-profits, publishing, finance, and more. All majors are encouraged to apply. Students will work with the Malibu Office and the London Staff to find an internship that fits with their area of study and interests.

Students will receive 4 units of elective credit for their internship. 

Application Process

As part of your International Programs Application in Wavenet, you will be directed to a Supplemental Internship Application Form. Please complete the form along with your application.

If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted by the IP Office with a request to schedule an in-person interview (or a virtual interview if you are abroad). You will be asked to send an updated resume no later than 24 hours before the interview. If you are not selected, we will also send you an email to let you know that you are not being considered at this time. Submitting an application does not guarantee an interview.

In addition to the normal International Programs application criteria, your acceptance into an internship program will also take the following things into consideration:

  • Work and internship experience
  • Intercultural experience
  • Personal and professional fit of the internships available
