Application Instructions

Applications are due 6 weeks before the intended start date for virtual programs, and 4 months before the intended start date for in-person programs.

Because these programs are meant to be full-time internships, students are not advised to apply/participate in other ISEP programs for the same term. We can assist student applications if they would like to experience each program consecutively (before/after studying abroad).

1. Submit your application through ISEP to receive the ISEP student discount of $200 off.

2. The application is free, and will take you to our partner The Intern Group to schedule an interview with their admissions counselor. You’ll discuss your previous experience, your field of interest, your career goals, and what you hope to get out of an internship.

3. The admissions counselor will send your documents to the placement team, and they’ll determine if they can find you a placement in one of your top 2 fields of study. If they can, they’ll offer you a letter of admission, guaranteeing you an internship in one of your top two fields.

4. On your letter of admission, there will be a link to pay your deposit (800 British Pounds) to secure your spot in the internship program (TIG programs are very competitive, so we recommend submitting your deposit within 2 weeks of receiving your acceptance letter to ensure that you’ve confirmed a spot on the program).

5. After you pay your deposit, you’ll be assigned an Intern Group program advisor, who can help you prepare for interviews.

6. Half of your remaining fee is due within 30 days of enrollment.

7. You’ll interview with prospective internship sites (usually the first one is the best match)

8. Secure your internship. You will be asked to pay the remaining balance within 21 days of having your internship role confirmed.

9. Orientation & start your internship!

Start Your Application!

For Coordinators: TIG Internship programs do not affect the exchange balance and do not use ISEP’s application process. TIG programs are not the same type of program as ISEP Exchange and ISEP Direct programs, and students will be billed by TIG and work with them directly. The internship application is facilitated by a separate system and will not be accessible on the ISEP Portal so our University Relations Manager will contact you whenever we receive an application from one of your students. While you will not be able to access or track their application directly, you can let our team know if you have any questions or would like an update on their application and we can assist.
