We offer plenty of opportunities to students who are keen to get professional experience. Here are some examples:
InternshipsWe have ongoing links with a variety of international and national organisations through which we offer internship opportunities to our students. For example, past interns have worked at Graduate Women International, an organisation which advocates for women’s rights, equality and empowerment through access to secondary and tertiary education, in their Geneva office. Here the interns assisted with event and social media management, undertook research, and represented the organisation at United Nation Sessions.
Teaching & Work Experience during Year AbroadStudents of French and Spanish honours going on a year abroad can apply for a British Council placement, to teach English in primary or secondary schools in Spain, France or Belgium. Many students elect to do an internship on their year abroad. The School has many links with organisations overseas, such as Fundación Vivo Sano, a health defence organisation in Madrid, CEN, the European Committee for Standardization in Brussels, and SKIP, an NGO helping economically disadvantaged children in Peru.
More experience in the School of Politics, Philosophy, Language & Communication StudiesWe are always keen to make the most of and reward student talent. As opportunities arise, we develop paid student roles that offer valuable work experience, for example as ambassadors at open days or taking care of the School’s social media platforms.
