The idea behind an internship is to make a connection: Learn about the lives, opinions, values and behavior of local citizens on a daily basis and joining with fellow students in an exchange of views on academics and the “real” world. Professional experience outside the classroom is an invaluable opportunity and one that can only benefit your students.
In addition to their academic schedule, interns will ‘work' 2 -3 days per week with a sponsor company. However, we at Global-Eyes realize how difficult and time consuming it would be for students or academic advisors to find positions and make these types of connections. Global-Eyes is offering placements for your students whereby easing any stress to students wishing to do more than academic study during their semester.
What Global-Eyes Offers
We now offer internships in London , Dublin , Edinburgh , Oxford , Cambridge , Australia , New Zealand , Canada and various cities and towns upon request in the United States . We aim to locate positions in cities/towns based on your student's specific requirements. We are also able to arrange positions in other non-English speaking countries as long as your students are able to show the ability to converse fluently in a language other than English.
Our service is beneficial to the students in that they will be able to begin their internship immediately upon arrival abroad. We offer options in several fields of interest and are available to assist them in making their choice. In reality, most companies and organizations generally do not give high priority to correspondence received from students. The contacts that Global Eyes has established can be invaluable in finding the right placement for the interested student. All of the companies and organizations we work with have had a successful association with Global-Eyes in the past and are looking forward to continuing this relationship.
Global-Eyes Student Programs goal is to provide you with placement choices for your students. We can either accept specific requests from individual students or provide options from our database of available internship positions.
Items Included Are:
You may also book the Orientation session only for your academic semester students which is a two-three hour session and includes all materials provided at Orientation.

London Interns: Attend speaking engagements and visits when scheduled. We enlist the services of many interesting speakers in various forums. This enhances the students' internship experience by exposing them to other professional sectors. Speakers in the past have been from the BBC, Channel 5 News, Members of Parliament with visits to the London Mayor's Office and Tower of London Changing of the Key Ceremony to name a few.
Interns will also be evaluated by their Supervisor at the end of their internship.
We make every effort to consider a student's specific request and to find the internship that will fit their requirements as closely as possible. We also offer innovative ideas to the student that is open to any new adventure.
We would appreciate the chance to work with the students from your school. We feel Global-Eyes can offer a unique opportunity for motivated students and add a new dimension to their time abroad. Please see our testimonials page to hear what past interns have to say about Global-Eyes Internships.
