CEA CAPA London Internship Program

I spent a semester abroad via the CEA CAPA London Internship Program as a U.S. student. I mostly decided to do the program due to the internship opportunity, which has been beneficial to have on my resume after returning to the U.S. The academics abroad were good as well, as my professors were London based with many qualifications. The CEA CAPA staff were supportive and hosted events to help students get involved. Housing was decent, but be mindful of crime. Overall, I thought it was worthwhile.

CEA CAPA Internship Experience

My internship journey in London was truly one of the most enriching experiences I've ever had. Through the impeccable guidance of the internship team at CEA CAPA, I was seamlessly connected with a remarkable company where I quickly found my stride and became an integral part of the team. Opting to work for a smaller company turned out to be one of the most pivotal decisions of my life. They warmly embraced me, offering mentorship and support, ensuring that my time studying abroad was nothing short of exceptional. The camaraderie fostered within the company made me feel like I was part of a close-knit family. I can’t thank the CEA CAPA team enough for orchestrating such a transformative experience during my time abroad.

What is your advice to future travelers on this program?
Looking back, one aspect I regret not embracing sooner was the opportunity to connect with fellow students within the program. It wasn't until after the first month that I actively sought out interactions with other students, and now, those individuals have become some of my closest friends.
Pros
  • Resume Builder
  • Lifelong Friendships
  • Becoming a world Traveler
Cons
  • Wish it was longer

Amazing Program!!

My time in London with CEA CAPA was amazing. I had the opportunity to live in the heart of the city, do an internship, and take very cool classes. My internship placement was excellent, I got to work in my field of study in a company where I met a lot of people from England and from all over the world. The classes at CAPA were amazing with a lot of field trips around the city to enrich the learning experience. The staff at CAPA was always extremely helpful and supportive throughout the semester. I am very happy I studied abroad, this experience helped me grow, expand my horizons, and meet a lot of amazing people and places.

Amazing Experience

Interning while in London was wonderful. The internship team was helpful and supportive. Navigating a new country is extremely difficult, especially when you also take on an internship, but the team at CEA CAPA made it a breeze. I had a different internship placement originally but it conflicted with my class schedule and luckily the team in London was able to re-assign me. It was a life-changing experience and extremely rewarding, one that I am so grateful to have added to my résumé. I can’t recommend this program enough!

CAPA london

I had the most amazing semester in London. The classes were interesting and different than anything else I had ever experienced. Largely due to the amazing field studies in many different courses that had us going out doing things I wouldn’t typically do for example a graffiti art walking tour. The housing was excellent in a very safe and residential community. I had a great time exploring London with all the museums, art, food, culture, and especially theater. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking to explore, get out of their comfort zone, and up for non traditional learning.

Pros
  • Housing in central London
  • Oyster card for unlimited travel in zones 1+ 2
  • Lots of travel experiences
Cons
  • No dining plan

The most amazing educational experience I have ever received!

Interning in London will forever be the highlight of my time in college. It is so hard to put into words my experience as it was nothing short of incredible. I developed a variety of personal and professional skills that are extremely valuable, as well as life-long friendships with both locals and other students. Experiencing a completely different culture both locally and in the workplace is something that has shaped me tremendously and I cannot wait to visit London again, I miss it every day!

Pros
  • Delicious, diverse, and authentic food everywhere.
  • A beautiful walk every day to my internship site.
  • The freedom to travel and explore different countries.
Cons
  • Keep belongings strapped closely to you and never leave anything unattended.

My experiences with them was next to flawless-- they connect you with someone who guides you through the process and is knowledgeable about internship connections abroad to help find the best one for you specifically. I highly recommend their services if you want to have easy access to an incredible internship experience abroad.

I had the opportunity to network with my internship and create connections that will help in future jobs nationally and internationally!

What was your funniest moment?
We went to Stonehenge and it was the windiest day in modern Stonehenge history and we almost got blown over but it made it so fun!

A Whole New World

My six-week departure for London with the CAPA Global Internship Program was my first time leaving home internationally. As scared as I was and unsure if the trip would really happen for me, I knew that it was the best decision I had ever made. The experience enhanced my time in college and even helped me advance in my academic goals. The Shakespeare course with Robert Ball was a great way to study the art of the playwright himself. I managed to learn 15 plays in a matter of six weeks. It would have taken me six months if I took the course back at my home campus.

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have liked to improve my budgeting skills. I did not have much money upon showing up, and my school did not release my funds for my trip until the VERY LAST WEEK that I was there. Get involved in the research and application process of your study abroad program early, I would say a year in advance. That way, you have plenty of time to look into scholarships and save your money until departure day.
