Berlin and London
We provide students with practical work experience in Berlin and London. Students can apply themselves to building up great resumes in their dream fields, or use the opportunity to try out separate career areas - all of which provide participants with clarity and professional direction.
The point of the internships is to get real work experience, to improve his/her workplace English skills, and to allow one to develop a network of colleagues in the relevant areas.
JAcademy students may participate in an internship in a law firm, marketing group, laboratory, or in a hotel management office. The list of possibilities is long and varied, and the choice belongs to the student. A certificate of completion will be given for every internship, and students may receive letters of reference as well.
