Did you know... You can intern abroad remotely with companies based in London!

New for summer 2020 due to COVID-19 restrictions. This unique opportunity allows students to work on a global level and yet stay local. An online internship can be done from anywhere, allowing students to have flexibility and freedom to work and gain professional experience remotely. Let us help you find an international internship in your potential field today!

Program Description:

The program consists of a 6 week internship in the field of your choice and a (3 credit) seminar course led by Kevin Chamberland, our Semester in London program coordinator. Kevin is based in London and will help students prepare for situations they will encounter in their work setting, and also process their experience.

JMU partner, CAPA, who has been placing US undergraduates in global internships for more than 25 years, will work with each student to find a placement that directly connects to their interests and career goals. Placements are made in a range of fields and industries, including:

Advertising & PR | Business | Communications | Data Analytics | Education | Finance | Fundraising & Philanthropy | Game Design & Development | Graphic Design | Healthcare & Life Sciences | Human Resources | Interior Design | IT & Computer Systems | Marketing & Communications | Sports Management | Video Editing & Animation | Web Design

Program Location: London (virtual)

*CAPA can also utilize their global connections outside of London if options are needed for your field of interest.
