Step 2: Complete CAPA’s KU London Internship application by Feb. 25th.    See the CAPA Application Instructions in the Required Readings section of your Jayhawks Abroad account for details. 

Please Note: International students who are not native speakers of English speakers are required to provide English proficiency exam scores not more than 2 years old as part of the UK visa application process.  The two most common tests that international students in the US are able to take are the Pearson and IELTS exams (TOEFL scores are not accepted by the UK Border Agency). These typically cost around $150-200 and require the student to schedule a test in advance at a designated testing area. More information on these tests (and all other accepted English language tests) can be found here.  The student must secure at least a B2 level on any qualifying exam.  You will receive visa instructions in late March but in order to begin the visa application process, you must have already received your test scores so it is important that you take one of the accepted tests as soon as possible to ensure that you are able to obtain a visa in a timely manner.  Please contact CAPA and the Office of Study Abroad right away if you fall into this category.

Program Reviews:
Bridget Lynn DuVall, Summer 2012 Participant
My internship was at hospital, which specialized in respiratory and cardiac disease. I worked in the hospital school with children suffering from cystic fibrosis and severe heart conditions. Working in an environment geared toward helping others was one of the most rewarding experiences.
Summer 2014 Participant
The whole experience was amazing. I can't pin point exactly one point, but just the overall experience. I loved feeling like I belonged in London, and that I actually was a Londoner for the entire 2 months I was there.
Summer 2012 Participant
It's important to be open to new experiences, people and opportunities. Take advantage of the awesome chances you get while studying abroad.
