Home of the greatest authors, most respected newspapers, and the broadcasting behemoth of the BBC, the UK is the perfect place in which to put your communications studies into action.

Everyone communicates, it’s that fundamental. What the message is and how it is conveyed are crucial factors in so many realms of professional and political life. If it goes wrong, the impact can be significant.

The opportunities in the UK, but particularly around London, are endless. Home to Saatchi and Saatchi, the largest advertising agency in the world during the 1980s, London has a strong legacy when it comes to creative and award-winning advertising agencies. Since the 1990s, it has excelled in film production with Working Title Films, just one example, being the company behind the Bridget Jones movies, and 2018 Oscar winner Darkest Hour, starring Gary Oldman as Winston Churchill.  Add a plethora of respected TV production companies, major newspapers, publishing houses, and PR firms and you see that the UK is the most exciting place for your Communications internship.

Why a Communications Placement in the UK?

A Communications degree opens doors in many different sectors. There isn’t an organisation that will not benefit from having staff with strong communications skills. The traditional careers for Communications graduates are Publishing, Journalism, PR, Marketing and Media including Digital Media, but you might also consider Human Resources, Social Work, Education, or any number of fields where strong communication skills are essential.

During one of our internships, you could find yourself editing a publication, helping to write a script, brainstorming slogans, or shaping the news stories of the day. You will certainly develop key critical, analytical, IT, communication and creative skills.
