London is a capital like no other. Fast-paced, exciting and multicultural, London is a city of opportunity. As well as history, culture and nightlife, London is also home to one of the world’s most energetic business communities. In London you will find incredible opportunities to develop your skills and gain professional experience.

Our traineeship programmes in London are:

  • tailored to your goals, skills and experience
  • available all year
  • available from 4 weeks to 6 months and longer 

You can choose from the following work and study packages in London:


A traineeship abroad is an amazing way for you to learn new skills, improve your English language and experience a new culture. The programmes are open to students, graduates and Erasmus+ participants and can be completed at any time of the year.

Traineeships are periods of work experience offered by host companies to provide you with an opportunity to learn about the working environment, gain experience in your chosen sector and improve your English language skills. They can last from 4 weeks to 6 months.

A traineeship can provide great opportunities to speak directly in the host country language to people who have experience in the sector you aspire to; and their knowledge of this sector and its working environment will give you a greater understanding of what you need to do to progress in your desired career.



The Important Points

  • Host companies will be linked to your skills, experience and desired sector.
  • You may be interviewed via skype, phone or in person before beginning your traineeship.
  • Your traineeship depends on language level, suitability and letter of motivation and relevant studies in relation to your required traineeship.
  • Your traineeship participation can be terminated due to negligence, poor behaviour, dismissal from work or criminal behaviour.
  • Our traineeship programmes in London are available all year, but we recommend booking at least 2 months before you plan to arrive.

    (Madrid, Spain)

    This experience have been really positive for me. I have learned how to live independently, how to value a lot of things (a job, a weekend, to do the shopping, to save money, to spend money in a responsible way, etc.). I also have demonstrated to myself that I am a professional and that I enjoy teaching a lot. Now I know that I am qualified to be a teacher in a different country with a different language. I recommend this programme for everybody because it is fantastic!

    Réaliser un stage à Cork a été une opportunité extraordinaire pour booster ma future carrière! Le stage répondait à mes attentes de A à Z, j’ai eu l’occasion de travailler au sein d’une équipe dynamique, et j’ai énormément appris, aussi bien d’un point de vue professionnel que personnel. De plus, l’Irlande est un pays magnifique, il est impossible de ne pas tomber sous son charme! Si j’ai un conseil à vous donner, c’est de faire confiance à Partnership International pour votre stage à l’étranger!

    With my internship, organised by Partnership International, I got to visit many different Irish companies and was involved with introducing international students to them. I was also involved with inductions and orientations for foreign students. My work also included office administration. My colleagues were really nice so the working experience was very good. And I got to see a bit of Ireland while there. I’ve been to the Cliffs of Moher, a whiskey distillery, a falconry and many places more. So, overall it was a great experience and I would totally recommend it!

  • Asisa

    (Kronach, Germany)

    First of all, I really love Cork! The people are very nice and friendly. My placement was with a very cool and friendly company as well. I enjoyed the time with my cool colleagues and boss! My work was familiar to me because I translated documents like I am learning in Germany. I would recommend an internship in Cork for every student because it is worth it. You improve your language skills and learn the culture. The Irish accent is also very cool but funny as well! So, I really enjoyed my time here. Thank you Partnership International!

  • Christian

    (Berlin, Germany)

    So after all, I have to say it was an absolutely great opportunity to get to know a new country/city, people and to make an intercultural experience. I am lucky that Partnership International organised everything so well and that they were hands-on to their students the entire trip. Thanks very much for everything and keep doing what you are doing! It will definitely not be my last time in Ireland and you helped me to open new ways! Cheers!

    Me ha gustado mucho realizar unas prácticas de 3 meses en Cork. De hecho, voy a quedarme aquí otros 3 meses más (¡la empresa donde hice las prácticas me ha contratado!). La ciudad es muy agradable y todo el mundo es muy atento, amable y con una mente muy abierta. Lo peor, como español, es el tiempo y los precios. Mi inglés ha mejorado mucho y he viajado por esta magnífica isla, así que creo que esta experiencia ha sido perfecta. Tomé una gran decisión al animarme a hacer las prácticas con Partnership International. La bienvenida tanto de Partnership como de la empresa fueron excelentes.

  • Laura

    (Bordeaux, France)

    My internship has given me the opportunity to learn a lot and to improve my professional skills in a foreign language. It was a great opportunity for me to gain practical skills and work within a professional team. The lessons I learned as an intern are still with me today and I’m thankful to all the team of Partnership International who were a real pleasure to deal with. I would recommend an experience like this to everyone.
