LIFE ABROAD

London Met's summer internship program gives students a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study while living and working in London, one of the most lively and cosmopolitan cities in the world. Students can participate in excursions and social programs with fellow international students in addition to their classwork and internship, making the program an unforgettable, immersive experience.

 

Excursions & Cultural Experiences

Throughout the summer school program, students will have the opportunity to take part in excursions. Spaces for each excursion are limited and operate on a first come, first served basis. Examples of potential excursions include Stonehenge, the London Eye, the Tower Bridge, and Stratford-upon-Avon. The optional social program is available for an additional fee, starting at £350.

Housing & Meals

Student accommodation is available throughout the summer school at local residence halls Bloomfield Court and AXO Islington. Students will have access to grocery stores, cooking facilities, and a multitude of dining options with affordable meal choices.

Explore London

London is a diverse and lively city with plenty for students to do. Students can explore the famous markets at London's South Bank, go on a scenic walking tour at Hampstead Heath, and visit notable locations such as the British Museum, the National Gallery, and the Victoria and Albert Museum.

Course Description

Students participating in the Study & Intern program take one academic module of their choice during Session 1 of the program, and then begin their internship in Session 2. Students will work with London Met’s internship provider to find the right placement for them. Due to visa requirements, students cannot do the internship by itself - it can only be done in combination with an academic module. Only one class is taken per session, so students may not take a Session 2 course if they are participating in an internship.

Each academic module will include teaching inside and outside the classroom. Assessment will depend on the module but can include a presentation, project work, and/or written assignments. Internships take place full-time on four days per week and are joined by an academic element on one day per week at the university.

Students who complete the program in good standing can expect to earn 30 UK credit points which ISEP recommends is the equivalent of 6 U.S. Credit Hours. Each course will be worth 15 UK credit points / 3 US credit hours.

Please note that if you use financial aid, you may be required to earn 6 US credits to be eligible for summer aid. Please speak with a qualified financial aid advisor to understand your eligibility and the requirements for using financial aid.
