At Harlaxton College we can offer you a unique internship opportunity during which you’ll not only learn about the world of work, but also have a chance to immerse yourself in a new culture, gaining experiences that will shape you forever.

Developing your initiative, self-reliance, confidence and cultural horizons, your time in England is sure to help you stand out from the crowd as a hot proposition for employers in the future.

For the duration of the internship, you will live in the wonderful Harlaxton Manor, just five minutes from the town of Grantham in the heart of England and you will spend time embedded in a local business, public body or non-profit organization, carefully chosen to fit your interests. Alongside this you will also get to engage with the excellent program of formal academic study on offer.  In a semester, you will take three other courses to be at a full-time class load, and in the summer, you can do one summer session of coursework and one session of internship experience.

All placements will be within easy traveling distance of the Manor, and throughout your internship in England, you will be supported by a local coordinator who will always be available to help with questions and issues along the way. Internship opportunities are available in the fall and spring semesters and the Summer II session.

But it isn’t all work. Our internship program offers plenty of time to take advantage of the many excursions and cultural experiences organized by Harlaxton College for visiting students, all of which will further enhance your understanding of British life and society.

This, together with the fact you’ll be earning credits towards your degree, make our internship program an experiential learning opportunity that you and future employers, will love!
