Do I need to do my internship straight away after I complete the course?

No, we understand that you may not be able to take time out of your schedule to do the course and the internship consecutively. Therefore, we will organize the internship for whenever you are available (can be several months after course completion).

How long is the internship for?

Most companies require a minimum of four weeks.
However, we try to accomodate students if they want shorter or longer periods.

What level of English is required?

Due to the complexity and depth of the material as well as the requirements of companies offering internships, we ask for a B2/Upper Intermediate level of English.
As described by the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) this level applies to independent language users who are able to interact with native speakers in a relatively fluent and spontaneous way with little effort. They are also able to articulate complex ideas and various points of view in clear and detailed text.
If you do not feel comfortable that you are at this level, you are welcome to take one of our General English courses to improve your language skills and subsequently take the Skills for Success course.
If you are unsure of what your level is, please contact us and we will arrange an online assessment for you.

Will I be paid during my internship?

Although this has occasionally been arranged, the majority of the companies we work with do not offer paid internships.
