The Intern Group
LSE has negotiated a special deal with The Intern Group that gives General Course students the opportunity to undertake an internship during their time on the programme.
For an exceptional price of £590, General Course students can apply for an internship totalling eight weeks, from the end of November to early December 2017 and mid-February to early March 2018, within a sector of the economy of their choosing – from blue-chip firms to fast growing small and medium-sized businesses, to non-profit organisations and government departments.
The Intern Group have a physical office in London and provide 24 hour support; proprietary training materials and videos; lifetime membership of their alumni network, and assistance in obtaining academic credit from students’ home institutions (should this be possible).
Please note that these internships are wholly separate from study at LSE and are undertaken in addition to the four full-year (or the equivalent in half-unit) courses that General Course students must take.
General Course students interested in adding an internship to their study abroad experience should apply directly to The Intern Group before they arrive in London.
