Internship Visa Process

Before you take on internship jobs in London, you will need a Tier-5 visa—specifically the Temporary Work GAE (Government Authorised Exchange) visa, designed for London internships.

UK Internship Visa and Timeline

  • The first thing you will need to do for internships for 3 months in London or longer is secure a Sponsorship Certificate from an authorised Tier 5 visa provider. We work in partnership with BUNAC and AIESAC, allowing for a smooth facilitation of this process.
  • The visa sponsorship process could take up to 2-4 weeks at most, while the UK Visa and Immigration Office’s standard visa application processing time is 15 working days

Internship Visa Rules (Tier 5)

  • You need to either be a full-time degree student or have graduated within the last two years before the commencement of your internship.
  • For those who do not speak English as their first language, you will need to complete a SELT (Secure English Language Test) with a score of 6.0 or above. We also accept a valid IELTS/ TOEFL certificate.
  • As a UK immigration requirement, you need to show Proof of Funds with the statement reflecting a minimum of £ 1270.  This minimum balance should have been maintained in your account for at least 30 days consecutively at the time of application. This can come from your family or a guarantor. 

Housing in London

For internships in London for students and graduates, our standard housing options include a private ensuite bedroom. You’ll share the common kitchen and living spaces with other students, providing networking opportunities. Upgrade to a studio room for a private bathroom and kitchen by paying an additional fee based on the room rate. All our housing includes high-speed WIFI, utilities, bed linens, laundry facilities, and a fully equipped kitchen.

London Internships FAQ

What kind of company will I be interning with?

When looking for internship jobs in London, no single answer can be given to that question. It depends entirely on your internship preferences, your performance during the interview, and the duration you have applied for. The companies we work with range from start-ups to large multinationals. The one thing that they all have in common is that your internship with them will be both challenging and rewarding.

With all of Capital Placement’s programs, you are in complete control. If you successfully pass our Zoom interview, your CV will be presented to our partner firms that meet your career aspirations and you will have the opportunity to speak with your future Supervisor and employer. If you are not satisfied with the company you have been provided with, we can provide you with additional company options for you to choose from.

What do you mean by a guaranteed internship?

At Capital Placement, we take great pride in the fact that we guarantee an internship that is right for you. Specifically, once you have been accepted to one of our programs, we guarantee that you will be placed in an internship in the city, the industry and the type of firm you have requested within 8 weeks of the deposit being paid.

In the unlikely event, we are unable to find you a company that matches your preferences within the 8 week period, a full refund will be provided to you- no questions asked.

Can I change the company once I start my internship?

Once you have started your internship in London, it is not possible to change the company you are working for as your visa is tied to the company you are interning with.

I’m a UK resident; why am I not eligible for the London Internship Program?

Capital Placement’s programs are all about experiencing the rewards, excitement, and challenges of working in a foreign country. Most of us here have experienced it ourselves and are very passionate about having others benefit from it. Interning abroad is more than just about the internship, and this broad experience is something we are incredibly passionate about. For this reason, we will not accept applications for programs in a country from residents of the same country- you are far better off without our help for this. We would like you to build not only professional experience but also a global experience that builds your international skill set as a global citizen.

If you are from the UK, why not intern in New York or Singapore and challenge yourself?

Will I be paid during the internship in London?

Due to UK visa regulations, summer internships in London are unpaid. However, for internship for 3 months in London, we have numerous paid internship opportunities.

What is the difference between the Certificate of Sponsorship fee and the Visa Application fee?

Applicants who do not hold a valid passport from the UK or Ireland must have a Certificate of Sponsorship to apply for a visa to do an internship in the United Kingdom. At Capital Placement, the cost of the Certificate of Sponsorship is included in your program fee.

The Visa Application fee is something you pay directly to the British Embassy in your home country when you submit your passport and application for the visa to be stamped. This fee is not included in your program fee.

How long does the process take to find an internship after graduation?

For internships in London in 2024, our usual process will take 3 – 4 months from placing the deposit to arriving in London to start your internship.

How do the payments work?

The fee structure is uniform throughout London internships for US students or people from other nationalities. If you have successfully passed our interview and received an offer to join, you must pay a deposit of £600 to secure your place in the program. The deposit will be deducted from the total program fee. The remaining amount will be split into two equal payments. The first payment is due once you have accepted an internship offer from the employer you wish to work for. The final amount is due once you have received your Tier 5 visa sponsorship.

What is the refund policy?

If Capital Placement fails to find you an internship that you are happy with, we will refund all your money in full. You can read more about the refund policy on our guarantees page.
