London, England: Study + Internship
Spend a semester or academic year in the lively, worldly city of London, England, with AIFS! As a major political, financial and cultural center London is one of the world’s most thriving and cosmopolitan cities. Home to a multitude of museums and galleries, concert halls, theaters, historic buildings and a host of beautiful urban parks, London has something for everyone. Whether your interest is art or theater, fashion or film, business or music, London has all the resources you could want for a stimulating study abroad experience. 

Working side by side with locals is an ideal way to gain insight into another culture, to understand different approaches and to prepare for the realities of working in a multicultural and interdependent world. AIFS Abroad has designed the Study + Internship Program to combine a traditional academic learning experience with a unique opportunity to study working life in Britain first-hand with placements in London based organizations.

Study + Internship students earn 12 U.S. credits for the semester. In the first 6 weeks students take 2 courses (45 hours and 3 credits each for 6 credits in total) from the Traditional Academic Program which offers courses in a broad range of academic disciplines which relate specifically to the history, art, architecture, culture, economics and politics of Britain and make special use of the resources available in London. This is followed by a week of internship preparation and a 6-week internship for 6 credits. The academic program and internship are accredited by Fairfield University.

Internships are available in a wide range of companies and institutions in advertising, art, design, art history, fashion, international business, marketing/market research, media, journalism, politics and government, PR/communications, psychology, theater and more. In addition to participating in the internship, students will take Contemporary British Culture and elective courses.

Enjoy cultural and social activities including: 
  • Guided city tours
  • Theater performances
  • Music concerts
  • Visit to an English soccer game
  • Day trips to Cambridge, Stonehenge and Salisbury.
An optional 3-day trip to Paris (taking you through the Channel Tunnel!) is offered as well.
