An internship is a wonderful opportunity that allows students to learn as they “do.” As part of the study abroad experience, students can intern while overseas and take classes. This is a great opportunity to gain experiences not available in the classroom. In London alone, the Mount students are able to intern in a variety of fields such as Advertising, Public Relations, Marketing, Business, Charities, Education, Law, Journalism and Media.
While all internships involve a great deal of personal commitment, an international internship promises to be even more challenging and rewarding. Many international organizations offer students significant responsibilities. Mount Alumni who interned regard those higher levels of responsibility and expectations as some of the best of their study abroad experiences. Interning abroad will help students develop personal strengths and skills that will prove useful on the job market.
