The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point provides extraordinary study programs to those wishing an education beyond the bounds of the classroom or campus. Since 1969, both the Spring and the Fall Britain programs have allowed students to experience Europe, Britain, and especially London. Now we have added the opportunity for eligible students to do their externship/internship abroad during the summer in London.

This program is for UWSP students of Applied Physics, Business, Biology, Communication, English, Interior Architecture, History, International Studies, Sociology, Theater, Political Science, Theater & Health Promotion/Wellness,  etc.  Here's a sample of just some the Internships/Externships available:

Advertising - PR - Economics - High-end Residential, Office, and Hospitality Design;  Historic Preservation - Financial Services - Marketing - TV & Radio / Video Production - Lobby Groups - Parliament - Political Action Groups - Archival Research - Museum & Gallery - Management - Non-profit and Voluntary Organizations - Theatre/Literature - Stage Design and Sets - Orchestra or Dance Companies - Schools - Health Promotion and Wellness in Health Spas, Corporations, Clinics, Hhospitals, Mental Health Agencies - Labs - etc.

Application: A London Internship application packet is available in the International Programs Office, Room 108 Collins Classroom Center or by clicking here. Permission required from your major/department London Internship Coordinator. Coordinator’s signature is required on the Internship application form. Students will be asked to attend an Informational/Selection meeting and schedule a final interview.

APPLICATION DEADLINE: December 1, although late applications are often taken; contact the International Programs Office for details.  In all cases, applicants for this program need to have a valid passport by March one of the year in which they are traveleing to London.
