About Interning in England
London is truly the center of it all when it comes to international industry, trade and business. It is also one of the most international and diverse urban centers in the world, and interns who choose London as their destination will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in this city’s cosmopolitan, worldly culture. Interns who want to experience life in the cultural, academic, arts, and entertainment capital of the world can do no better than an internship in London. The opportunities available in London are limitless, and one could spend an entire lifetime experiencing everything the city has to offer without ever seeing and doing it all.
Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant’s tastes. Interns share meals with new friends or host family members, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area. World Endeavors provides a list of possible activities in the area and the World Endeavors local coordinator can also function as an ever present guide and ambassador to the area.

I got a whole new perspective on how people from other countries live and do things, which was, in some ways, completely different than what I was used to. I loved it!
