Overview The Wake Forest University Internship Program in London, in conjunction with European Study Abroad (EUSA), offers qualified WFU students an internship relevant to their field of study. Internships are full time for four weeks preceded by a one week-long orientation and a 3 week long visa compliance seminar called How Britain Works (see below).

Internships are available in numerous fields, including but not limited to: Advertising, Marketing, Public Relations, Arts, Theatre, Banking & Financial Services, Business, Film and TV, Journalism, Fashion, Multimedia, Hospitality, Law, Non-Party Politics, Party Politics, Contact Psychology, Occupational Therapy & Physical Therapy, and Psychology Research.

***For Business placements, students are required to have a minimum 3.0 GPA and taken at least one course related to the discipline.

Due to British Immigration/Visa requirements, students will participate in a 4 week course called How Britain Works. This course is comprised of a morning seminar based around a contemporary British theme followed by an afternoon excursion to a museum or some other culturally significant location that ties into the morning seminar's theme. Attendance for How Britain Works is mandatory due to visa compliance issues. The seminar's themes consider the political, economic, social and cultural landscape, while paying special attention to London as both a capital city and a node point in an increasingly globalized world. 

***Please note that a Tier IV Visa is required for this program. EUSA will provide you with resources to help you secure the visa once you are accepted into the program. Obtaining the Tier IV visa can be a very ornerous process which will require you to travel to Charlotte to obtain your biometrics. The fee is around $500. Please take seriously all emails and documents pertaining to your visa. https://www.gov.uk/tier-4-general-visa/overview

***For the London program, please do not purchase a flight that connects in Dublin before arriving in London to start the program. There are complications regarding getting your visa stamped correctly when passing through Ireland. Contact EUSA or Mike Tyson with questions. 

Program Dates: May 24th to July 17th, 2021. 
Location London is one of Europe's largest and most cosmopolitan cities. Its famous sites include Buckingham Palace, the Tower of London, Trafalgar Square, Picadilly Circus, and Westminster Abbey. With a multitude of art galleries, museums, and pubs, London is endlessly interesting. The underground rail "tube" system provides easy access to all parts of the city. Students may conveniently visit Canterbury, Oxford, Bath, Dover, and other destinations (Scotland and Wales) via the excellent British railway system.
Program WFU students will generally receive 3 hours of WFU credit, pass/fail. Students will be enrolled in BUS 350 which counts as general elective credit towards graduation. Grades will be based on the assignments given in EUSA seminar courses and weekly journals. If you wish to seek credit from a separate academic department, please discuss this option with Mike Tyson or Sean McGlynn.

One week orientation followed by the three week How Britain Works seminar followed by a four-week full time internship placement. 
Faculty  
Accommodation Students will be housed in fully furnished residences in London that are specially designed for the student lifestyle.  This means a comfortable atmosphere in a residence hall or flat of European proportions - students may find that things are a bit smaller and that space is more limited than one might expect on a US campus. Students will have access to a kitchen with modern cooking facilities, common areas, and high speed internet. Rooms are doubles.
