FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
There is no single answer that can be given to that question. It depends entirely on the strength of your application, your performance during the interview, industry preferences 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 programmes, you are in complete control. If you successfully pass our Skype interview, you will be provided a list of firms for you to choose from. if you are not satisfied with the company’s you have been provided with, we can provide you with additional company options for you to choose from. If in the unlikely event that we are unable to find you a company that matches your preferences, a full refund will be provided to you.
At Capital Placement, we take great pride in the fact that we guarantee an internship for you. Specifically, once you have been accepted on to one of our programmes, we guarantee that you will be placed in an internship in the city and the industry that you have requested.
To make this happen, we take the time to get to know you, which ensures that all of our internships are tailored to your individual preferences, needs, and professional and personal goals.
Once you have started your internship, it is not possible to change the company you are working for as your visa is tied to the company you are interning with.
Is it possible to apply for just an internship, I don't need any of the other inclusions of Capital Placement's programme.
Should your application be strong enough, we may be able to put you in contact with relevant companies and opportunities.
However, we are not able to guarantee you an internship unless you are enrolled on to one of our programmes. Additionally, we will be unable to assist with other aspects such as obtaining a Certificate of Sponsorship, accommodation, etc.
Capital Placement’s programmes are all about experiencing the rewards, excitement, and challenges that come with working in a foreign country. Interning abroad is much than just about the internship and this broad experience is something we are incredibly passionate about. It is, for this reason, we will not accept applications for programmes in a country from residents of the same country. We would like for you to build not only professional experience but a global experience that builds your international skill set as a global citizen.
If you are from the UK, why not intern in India or Singapore and challenge yourself?
Capital Placement guarantees to find you an unpaid internship, as part of our programme. However, we do have a number of paid internship opportunities in London. If you are looking for paid internships only, please get in touch with us before making an application.
Applicants who do not hold a valid passport from one of the European Union countries’ are required to have a Certificate of Sponsorship in order 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 programme 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 programme fee.
The cost of your flight ticket is not included in the programme fee, both to ensure flexibility in price and timing for you in your travels. If you would like, we are more than happy to assist you with finding and booking your flights in order to ensure that you find the best price and itinerary for your needs.
We usually like to have applications at least 12 weeks prior to the start date of the internship.
However, we realize that sometimes your decision to apply for an internship abroad may be last minute. We are able to process the application for non-European candidates in six weeks and European applicants in as little two weeks prior to the internship start date. Please note: Capital Placement does not charge a fast track fee but we will require a deposit of £750, instead of the usual £350.
