FAQs

1. Are these internships paid?

Our mission is to facilitate accelerated professional development for international students. Whether these internships are paid or not is down to each specific placement company. However, internships do tend to be unpaid in London.

Close

2. Why should I join this program?

This program is an investment in your future and will give you a substantial advantage. International, blue chip work experience will significantly aid you when searching for long-term employment. You will have demonstrated the ability to think outside the box and handle another culture and language while working for a highly respected name. And the above doesn’t even touch on your personal development and the fun you will have!

Close

3. I am from the UK - can I still apply?

Our focus is to provide accelerated professional development for international participants on our programs. If you are from the UK, we recommend looking at our programs in other destinations around the world.

Close

4. When is the deadline to apply?

Our programs start every month of the year. We accept applicants on a rolling basis. We recommend applying at least 2 months before your preferred start date. In high season (May, June, July & August start-dates) we recommend applying at least 3 months before your preferred start date.

Close

5. Do I need a degree to apply for an internship?

No. A degree is not essential, although it will help when finding a suitable internship and will make the placement process easier.

Close

6. Can I see a list of employers or choose to intern at a specific company?

We do not provide a list of partner companies. Firstly, our list of partner companies is not static. We often partner with new companies if they would be a better match for a participant. We have dedicated out-reach teams, working on our participants´ accounts, in all program destinations, meaning our list of partners is constantly growing and evolving. Secondly, we do not provide a list as interns then attempt to “pick and choose” which companies they specifically want to work for. This promotes unrealistic expectations, as partner company needs, your wishes & background and external factors such as timing are all taken into account during internship-placement. If you are accepted into our program you are guaranteed a great role in your area of interest. However, due to the factors listed above a specific company cannot be guaranteed.

Close

7. What hours can I expect to work?

Typically, participants work an average work week of no more than 40 hours. The company at which you are interning will set your work hours but the majority of internships will take place between 9 am and 5 pm.

Close

8. Can I obtain academic credit?

If you need this internship for a university course or module, we will ensure that you secure academic credit.

Close

9. When will I find out where my internship will be?

Our London team will engage in a collaborative internship placement process with you and confirm your internship role typically around four to six weeks before your departure date. Please note this is a guideline and may differ during peak seasons.

Close

10. Is attendance at our events mandatory?

All of our events and activities that we organize are optional, but your internship is not. With The Intern Group, you may not miss work for any reason other than health and family emergencies unless previously approved by your employer.

Close

11. What happens when I arrive in London?

Before you leave, you will be sent a welcome pack that gives you all the information you will need to prepare for your arrival. When you arrive you will be picked up by our trusted driver in London, taken to your accommodation and met by your experienced coordinator for an induction. If you arrive in London after 6pm local time you will meet your coordinator the following morning.

Close

12. Can I live with a friend or family member and take the housing out of the cost?

We are generally unable to remove any elements from our all-inclusive programs. The employers we work with depend and ask for this service as it guarantees your reliability. However, if you have particular needs please do contact us.
