About London Internships (Summer)

The College at Brockport London Internship sites are all located in Central London or its immediate surrounding suburbs. Whether you are placed in a central London location or in one of the London suburbs you will have the opportunity to learn how the British people live and work. Every location has its own opportunities to try new things and meet new people. London internship placements vary widely and most majors can be accommodated.

The College at Brockport works with the largest independent internship provider in Europe, EUSA, which places over 1,800 young people each year in a wide-range of professional practice situations in a variety of industry sectors. Placements are arranged by an experienced team working with each student on an individual basis. The placement team makes a considerable effort to match each student to an appropriate placement and to monitor the students throughout the semester.

London is, in addition to being the center of British politics, business, art, music, and culture, a great city for students. There is always lots to see and do, and many opportunities for research, study, entertainment, and fun.

What is the business etiquette like in London?
In the UK, businesses generally run in a slightly more casual manner, with more emphasis placed on individual initiative and motivation. It is very likely that a student will be given projects and expected to complete them using their own resourcefulness. This does not mean that a student cannot ask for help – it simply means that supervisors will assume they will ask for help if they need it.

What should students wear?
This question will be answered with much more detail once the exact internship is in place. It is difficult to generalize on this because we have placements ranging from suits and ties to jeans. However, if students are working in a business setting (i.e. an investment bank or law firm) they should bring at least one suit and several dress shirts and ties. A sports jacket will work as well. In other, more casual placements (i.e. a PR agency or magazine) khaki trousers, skirts (for women), and sweaters or dress shirts should be fine. A student will need to ask about the dress code if we haven't told them by the time they leave.

Will students have one particular supervisor at their placement?
This is usually ONE person who will be responsible for the intern for the entire duration of the placement and usually they will be the one that your student interviews with. This is the person your student will go to when they need help, have concerns, or simply need a new assignment. This person may not be the Office Manager and in fact, may be in a junior position him/herself. Students may find that they are not far off in age to their direct supervisor – this is common – London is a young city!

How far can students expect to commute?
Most placements will be centrally located and are easily accessible by tube or bus (or even by walking, if students are lucky!). A typical London commute can be anywhere from 30 minutes to 90 minutes- remember this is a big city!
