Internship Course – Apply by April 27th!

Internship Seminar & Fieldwork – 4 points
Enrollment by permission only. Students must fill out the online application in order to be considered for this course. (Instructions below)
NOTE: Students accepted to this course must indicate on their visa survey (available May 1st – May 15th) that they want a Tier-4 General Student Visa; you will not be permitted to intern (paid or unpaid) without a Tier-4 visa. A Tier-4 visa costs a minimum of £289 GBP (approximately $460 USD), plus any applicable shipping and expedite fees. (*This does not apply to students traveling on EEA or Swiss passports.)

This 4 credit course includes a weekly seminar and minimum of 10 hours fieldwork/week at an approved internship fieldsite. Internship placements are made by EUSA, an organization partnering with NYU London.  EUSA provides internship placements in a wide range of organizations. Industry sectors include:

  • Business, Finance & Economics
  • Healthcare, Social Issues & Education
  • Television, Film & Journalism
  • Communications
  • Arts & Culture
  • Politics & NGOs

The seminar portion of the course explores many different aspects of your internship site. The goal is to finish the semester with an in-depth understanding of the company or organization, including its approach, its policies, and the context in which it operates. We will also discuss more generally the state of the contemporary workplace and ourselves as workers. Finally, you will use the seminar to reflect critically and analytically on the internship experience and as a way to refine your own personal and professional goals.

Note: All students enrolled in this course must participate in both the seminar & internship,  and earn 4 academic credits.
Application requirements:

  • An accurate and up-to-date resume or CV.
