I had a great internship with a LegalTech startup in London. I worked directly with the Founders during the internship, the team members and the working environment were great! Everyone during the internship were always more than happy to take the time to help and offer advice when needed.

Capital Placement were very helpful throughout the whole process and I had a great time in London overall. I look forward to coming back next year for another internship in London!

I was part of a summer group where we all worked for different firms including NGOs, property firms, FinTech, HealthTech startups, etc. I interned at an accounting firm in East London. During my internship, my Supervisor and the other colleagues were really nice and friendly, they helped me a lot with adjusting to life in the UK and were especially helpful in the first week, which made me feel supported and welcome. The single most important thing I learnt during the internship was not be afraid to ask for help when you are unsure. The more you asked, the more you gain from the internship. I am so glad I did this programme, I had an opportunity to live and work in a great city like London, made some great friends and learnt a lot professionally throughout the programme.

This programme is a great opportunity to experience London life and experience the London work environment first hand. Working in a medium sized company helped me meet and get to know every colleague in the company. This in turn help me get more exposure and how the various departments work. I want to say a huge thanks to my colleagues who always found time to help me and answer my endless list of questions! This experience has definitely had an influence on my future career path and it has taught me to push myself beyond what I am usually comfortable with.Once I am back, I am sure I will miss living in London, it is such a great city!

I would highly recommend this to anyone thinking on applying.

As part of this programme. staying in the UK for nearly 2 months allowed me to get to know more about the country's culture, people and politics. Doing an internship programme like this is a great opportunity to deepen your understanding of the career you wish to pursue. Although the working environment and future prospect may differ in different countries, by actively participating in discussions with colleagues you will gain a lot of insight into your career path and how things can work in alternatives. Supervisors are always willing to teach and share, so do not hesitate to ask questions!

One of the best experiences during the programme was the international party that the accommodation provider threw. We were invited to taste homemade food from the country's were other residents came from!

My best tip would be to plan ahead before you arrive and have plans for every weekend you are in London so you can make the most out of the experience.

After this internship, I know more about the working environment in the United Kingdom, it is so different from what I am used to in Hong Kong. In the United Kingdom, the working environment is more relaxed due to not many restrictions during office hours. For example, staff can choose to have lunchtime whenever they prefer, etc. which is not the norm in HK and there is a real emphasis on work life balance. I was pretty fortunate that my office has a number of free before and after work activities such as Monday Yoga Class, Wednesday Pizza Day and Friday drinks night, which was a great way for me to meet people and socialise. This internship has given me an unforgettable experience and I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone thinking of applying for it.
