All students on this program will complete a 7 week, 165 hour internship or service internship during the second half of the program, which is a pre-professional, field-based internship combined with an academic course.

On this program, you will identify the type of placement along with goals and skills you want to acquire while completing this internship. Then, our partner, FIE will place you in an internship.

Business & Entrepreneurship, Communications, Education, Environment & Sustainability, Entertainment & Performing Arts, Fashion, Beauty & Lifestyle, Finance & Accountancy, Historical & Cultural Organizations, Technology & Design, Legal & Justice Organizations, Public Health & Wellbeing, Social Welfare & Non-Profit Organizations

Housing is arranged for program participants by the Center for Global Education (CGE) in partnership with FIE. On this program, you live with other CSB+SJU students in furnished flats (apartments) or residential style housing with access to kitchen facilities. In the flat, there are single sex bedrooms, but the kitchen and living rooms areas are shared by Bennies & Johnnies. Also residing in the same building, are students from other US colleges and universities. Meals are not included in the program fee, but students have access to shared furnished kitchen facilities in their flats or student residence.
Students have use of the computer lab at Metrogate and access to the Kensington public library, the student union of the Imperial College of London. Wireless Internet access is available in all FIE buildings. There is not a fitness center available with the cost of the program. Students can access fitness centers in the area for a separate cost.
During a semester abroad, CSB+SJU students pay the same tuition as if on campus. Instead of paying CSB+SJU Housing and Meal Plan, all students studying abroad pay an Education Abroad Program Fee. Find Program Fee information on the CSBSJU-Global Portal.
Students should plan early for a successful study abroad experience. Financial aid and scholarships may be available to help with program costs, but must be searched out well in advance.
