Summer, semester and yearlong students interested in gaining professional work experience while studying at London Metropolitan University (London Met) can apply for an internship. Internships allow students to do part-time, voluntary work to gain the type of skills and real-life experience employers seek. Previous students have worked in the British Library, with fashion designers, and in the offices of Members of Parliament. There is an additional fee for an internship. Students undertaking internships will need to apply for Tier 4 student visa.
London Met's role is to source, monitor and administer the internships, and to support students throughout the internship process, but they do not award or transfer academic credit for internships. If you would like academic credit for your internship you should work with your home institution to see if this is possible on their end. London Met’s internship office will work with you individually on internship opportunities that match your interests.
Spots are limited so it is in your best interest to apply early; applications will be handled on a first come, first serve basis. The internship application process is managed entirely by London Met, and the internship application deadline may fall prior to the USAC application deadline. Students interested in an internship are advised to check the London Met website for details and to ensure they meet the application deadline. The USAC application must be completed prior to applying for a London Met internship.
