International Internships

The Global Engagement Office at Samford contracts with CAPA International Education for student internship placements in London, Florence, Sydney, and Beijing.

Any application to intern abroad must be cleared with The Gloal Engagement Office, Brooks Hall 221.

The following documents have been prepared to help Samford students apply for a UK visa and apply for an international internship. The application for a UK general student visa costs around $450 that is not included in your Samford University in London program fee. You will need an official Samford transcript for the UK visa application. The CAPA application requires a police background check that costs between five and twenty dollars.
