Description

Gain first-hand knowledge and professional experience through global experiential opportunities. Learn and work alongside international colleagues in a variety of cultural settings, build your international network of friends, and prepare for today's rapidly changing global society. These six-week, unpaid internships take place each year during the CU Denver downtown campus summer term.

Whether you wish to improve your resume, fulfill educational requirements, or accomplish life-long dreams, internships abroad are an essential component of a student's educational experience and represent a vital link to successful career preparation and personal development. As global market economies become increasingly interdependent, employers are looking to hire new employees who have international experience and who understand multi-cultural environments.
 

London, the capital of England and of the United Kingdom (UK), is by any standard one of the greatest cities in the world, and the world's most popular destination for study abroad programs. Known as the City of Culture, it has a population of over eight million people with a multitude of social and cultural backgrounds making it one of the most vibrant cosmopolitan cities in Europe.
 

Even after serving for four hundred years as the hub of the British Empire, London today remains at the center of the world's commercial and financial stage. London offers numerous cultural activities including world-class theatre, restaurants, and fascinating historical sites. It is conveniently located only a few hours away by train to popular cities such as Oxford, Cambridge, York, and Bath.
