LSBU Internships

Students studying abroad at London South Bank University (LSBU) can complete a 4 credit part-time internship in the semester as well as during the 6 week summer program. Students completing an internship are supported by reflective coursework throughout the term.

  • Business
  • Fashion Merchandising
  • Health
  • Marketing
  • Media Production
  • Public Relations
  • Social Sciences

Please contact SAI Admission for further information on potential areas of placement.

How to Apply
Students interested in completing an internship alongside regular coursework should select the London Placement course as part of their elective class schedule in their application. Students then complete the following additional application items:

  • CV/Resume, with work experience or skills in desired field.
  • Cover letter (1 page max).
  • One professional reference.
  • Completed internship application; provided once the SAI application is received with the internship course selected.
  • Pre-placement interview.

Once a completed internship application and supporting materials are received students are “promoted” to various employers in their desired field. Employers require a pre-placement interview of internship candidates. Please note that a complete application and interview does not guarantee placement.

Visas
The United Kingdom requires students who are participating in an internship to apply for a Tier 4 Visa prior to arriving in the UK. To initiate this process our partner schools in London must issue a “Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies” (or CAS number). They take the issuance of this confirmation very seriously and students must submit specific documentation, as well as additional deposits and fees. Please contact SAI for detailed information.
