Internships are an exciting aspect of our postgraduate programmes. They allow students to broaden their horizons, gain work experience and expertise in an area of their interest, and increase their chances of landing a job. Internships can also become an exciting part of the research project that is leading up to the dissertation.
Internships are structured periods of time that students can spend in a selected range of organisations and institutions. For example, some of our students have worked with the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology, the International Longevity Centre and the grassroots charity Action for Refugees in Lewisham. During the internship – typically 15 working days or more – the students contribute to a specific project or area of work that links to their course of study. All internships are approved by the Department of Global Health & Social Medicine and the King’s Internships Office in order to maintain quality. We have developed a portfolio of possibilities for students on our programmes.
The internship is currently a voluntary additional module and cannot be used to substitute for other compulsory or optional modules.
If you have any questions about the internship modules, or would like to know more about possibilities, please contact: Dr Carlo Caduff
