Internships with the Fulbright Commission’s Advising & Communications Team

The US-UK Fulbright Commission seeks bright, motivated students or recent graduates for our internship programme.

 

About the Commission and Advising & Communications Team: The US-UK Fulbright Commission fosters mutual cultural understanding between the US and UK through educational exchange in two ways: through our awards programme and advisory service. As an EducationUSA centre, our student advising team is designated by the Department of State as the official source of information on US higher education in the UK. Each year we reach thousands of UK students through our marketing, university fair, workshops, advising centre, website, social media, outreach around the UK and more!

 

Internships are unpaid. They may be arranged on a full-time or part-time basis.

 

About the Internship Programme: Interns join a small, but dynamic and highly-motivated team of staff. We try to ensure interns have a 50-50 balance between our day-to-day work and special projects they take ownership over.  Though some administrative work is required, participants work closely with staff on a wide range of professional activities, from assisting prospective students with questions about US study and representing Fulbright at schools and universities to helping plan our annual USA College Day fair or upcoming promotional campaigns and press releases.

 

For many interns, the programme is a great way to gain valuable, hands on work experience in student advising, events management, communications and/or marketing.  Interns also experience first-hand differences in culture and educational systems between the US and UK, and many find it exciting way to help other students interested in studying abroad follow in their footsteps!
