Internships are only possible if you have UK working rights on your visa.

For example, you can do an internship with a Youth Mobility Scheme Visa (Tier 5), or full-time Student Visa (Tier 4) with some terms and conditions about working.

European students can no longer work or volunteer in the UK without a visa and would need a Temporary Work Exchange Visa and company sponsor certificate.

We will keep you updated about any changes in legislation or if future possibilities are confirmed. Contact us if you would like help to check if you are eligible for an internship.

You can book the accommodation for your study abroad experience with us.
