How does a virtual internship work?
You’ll be working part-time with a company based in London, United Kingdom. As it’s a virtual internship, you’ll be working from home. This means you won’t have to be physically in London and can instead take part in the internship no matter where in the world you are.
During the internship, you’ll be assigned a site supervisor who will structure your internship and monitor your work. They will set you learning goals and give you activities that make sure you’ll achieve those goals. AES will provide you support in cooperation with the supervisor and assist the company you’re placed at in assessing and documenting your progress.
Where will you be working?
AES will find you a suitable company to work with based on your degree programme, previous experience and your future career interests. Usually the internships are with small to medium sized companies as in those companies you’ll usually be able to get more hands-on experience than in very large corporations.
