The internships are eight weeks full-time or seven weeks part-time, between June – September 2019.

" I didn't have any defined expectations, but I really didn't expect to have such a wonderful time. I was/ am so happy to go in to work every day because I really loved the company atmosphere, and really respected and got on well with my co-workers. I feel like I wasn't treated like an intern or the youngest member of the team (which I was), but was given responsibilities and respected on an equal footing. I learned a lot of things that I had no real comprehension of before the internship. I genuinely feel like I was helping out as well. Vesa Popova - UCL BASc Arts and Sciences - graduating 2018
