The London Semester Programme allows students to study and intern in London for fifteen weeks in the spring. In addition to taking classes at Birkbeck, Unviersity of London, participants will build business connections and gain cultural understanding through an internship with a British organisation.
Participants in the programme will undertake an internship that has been carefully selected for them, which matches up with their academic programme and future goals. Interns will have a direct supervisor to closely monitor their work and provide one to one support. Participants undertake an unpaid placement for 20 hours per week, and will receive academic credit awarded by Birkbeck, University of London upon completion of the internship.
In addition to the internship, participants will enrol in two classes with Birkbeck, University of London. Transcripts from the courses and work placement will be issued by Birkbeck, University of London.
