Fordham London: Summer Internship Program
At the heart of Fordham's study abroad programs is the idea of the world as the classroom. Small and informal class settings let students explore subjects from a new perspective and in a unique setting. Students engage with the city of London inside and outside of the classroom. Situated in the vibrant Clerkenwell district in the Borough of Camden, Fordham London will serve as your home-base while studying abroad in London.
Application deadline: February 15
Applicants to this program must be on campus at Fordham University in NY in the Spring semester before studying abroad in this program in order to facilitate visa processing.
Fordham London is located in the Borough of Camden in Central London, in a neighborhood called Clerkenwell.
The United Kingdom—England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland—is a diverse place full of contrasts, featuring a wide range of landscapes and cultures. London, the largest city in Europe, is a bustling cosmopolitan center of astonishing variety and interest that a visitor could explore for months without turning over every stone. The other regions of the U.K. are fascinating for their own reasons, each with a unique personality and history.
Students will take an internship seminar concurrently with their internship placement and a second course chosen from those offered in the Fordham in London: Summer Liberal Arts and Fordham in London: GSB programs. (GSB students must take two courses in addition to the seminar)
ISAP 4800 – International Internship
Internship-based education gives students the opportunity to discuss and analyze theories and models of work and organisations in a cross-cultural context. It also creates a framework for personal reflection on issues related to professional development. The syllabus and course content are a blend of theory and concepts, application, and reflection. The practical activities, discussions, and assessment mechanisms are all designed to support learning, using the internship as a vehicle.
Students accepted to the program receive an internship placement after comprehensive advising with our placement agency and successful completion of an interview with the placement company. Most internship placements are in small to medium-sized companies. Positions are unpaid and available in the following fields:
Advertising & Marketing; Economics & Finance; Business; Film, Radio & Television; Hospitality & Tourism; International Relations; Journalism; Politics; Pre-Law; Psychology & Health Sciences; Public Relations; Theatre Studies.
You will live in housing that is centrally located within London, in areas with shops and transportation and within reach of city attractions. Fordham University will bill participants a Program Fee that will cover the cost of housing during the program.

The residences have self-catering facilities with a shared lounge. All of our housing is centrally located within London, in areas with shops and transportation and within reach of city attractions.
