CAPA International Education, partners with American universities organising Study Abroad programmes and unpaid internships for undergraduate students.  We arrange more than 1000 internships a year in the London area in fields ranging from aviation to zoology. In particular we have a wealth of high caliber interns seeking placements towards the healthcare industry. We currently work with many organization across the medial and healthcare fields, ranging from private clinics in Harley street, community health organizations and large NHS trysts such as Kings College Hospital and the Whittington Hospital. For example, at Kings we have worked with over 28 departments for more than a decade now.

The placements are non-paying and students do them for academic credit, taking courses in conjunction with their placements.  Students are usually in their third or final year of study and come with varying degrees of experience. Many have already gained experience in their field of interest, and all are committed, enthusiastic and have a “can do” attitude. We have an in-depth screening process that ensures we have the highest caliber students coming on the program and all placements are contingent upon a successful interview with the placement site.

Our programmes in the autumn and spring are for 12 – 14 weeks and students do their placement for 20 hours per week for academic credit. Summer is our busiest period, where programmes normally run between 6 – 8 weeks.

This really is a great opportunity for the students, but also for your team to receive skilled and experienced interns that will work hard, deliver high outcomes and for no cost to your business.  If you would like to explore the opportunities of a working relationship, please contact Craig Kench
