Business Administration Internship, London
Our Business Administration Internship is a great opportunity for EU citizens to come to the UK and experience working life in a business environment. All placements are available in London, so you will benefit from working in one of the world’s busiest cities.
If you want to gain your first experience working in an office environment, this could be the ideal internship for you! Available to those who have a B1 level of English, the course will help to improve your time management and communication whilst encourage you to work as part of a team. You will spend 3-5 weeks in a small to medium sized business where you will benefit from a true office working environment. This internship will give you the chance to practise your English, as well as build up your vocabulary to include work-related words and phrases.

What if I don’t have a B1 level of English?
If you don’t currently have an intermediate level of English, this doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to do work experience in the UK. You can come and study at our British Council Accredited English school in London in order to improve your language skills, so that you have a better chance of gaining a placement.
