London is a truly international city, and living there allows students to experience people and cultures from around the world in one vibrant and exciting location. As a global leader in finance, industry, education, the arts and more, London has limitless opportunities for students looking to boost their resumes. On the London Internship Program, students will engage with this exciting city as both a professional and a student, interning part-time while earning academic credit. Coursework is designed to complement their work experience and to reinforce their professional and academic interests.

The Parliamentary Internship is available for students interested in British or international politics and public policy. Arcadia University organizes the logistics for students on this program, including internship placement, housing, orientation, etc. Special Arcadia scholarship money is available for UT Austin students.
