London InternshipsInternship Placements in London (Semester)

Mason internship study abroad programs are destination-specific programs. Unlike traditional study abroad programs focusing on one particular subject, internship programs include students from different majors, working and studying in the same location.  The student’s internship placement within a company relative to their area of study defines their global work experience, and determines the internship course credit the student will receive. For example, a London internship program can include (but is not limited to) students majoring in Government, Economics, Art, Criminology, Conflict Analysis & Resolution, Communications, and Psychology, and more. London, England is a vibrant international city, rich in culture, arts, history, with a broad spectrum of professional internship opportunities, attracting students from all around the world, for hundreds of years.

Introducing Anglo Educational Services


Program Details

Mason Study Abroad partners with Anglo Educational Services to place students in an unpaid semester internship program. Students work three days per week, and take three courses twice a week, while living in the heart of London, in a shared student apartment. Students gain valuable global work experience and professional skills in various industry fields, while also earning Mason resident credit, and enjoying the culturally rich, historic, cosmopolitan, international city of London.

During the semester internship program, Anglo Educational Services offers student support services in-country, such as a welcome orientation, discounted passes to London attractions, 24/7 staff support, and more.

Credits Offered

The London Semester Internship program offers students a combination of a three day per week professional internship and three high-level, academically challenging courses that examine Britain in the global perspective, focusing on historical and political aspects. The three courses are held at Anglo Educational Services Study Centre in London. Two courses are taught by faculty members at Anglo Educational Services; one course is taught by a Mason professor. Students take classes on Mondays and Fridays. Students work at their respective internship sites on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. 

Undergraduate Only

Undergraduate students take a 6-credit internship course taught by a Mason professor online through Blackboard. Students should speak to their academic advisor and their undergraduate program director about applying internship credit to their degree. Some undergraduate programs have independent research and special topics credit that may apply to this program. Some departments have specific requirements for receiving internship credit. Students are responsible for initiating the conversation with the academic department and communicating said requirements to Mason Study Abroad. Students must comply with department requirements in order to receive internship credit. Undergraduate students also take two 3-credit courses taught by professors at Anglo Educational Services and one 3-credit course taught by a Mason professor. See table above for more information.
