Impact of Covid-19
Many of our US and UK internship programmes are currently on hold, due to travel restrictions and social distancing, but we are working on contingency plans with the associated companies and organizations. We will resume our internship schemes as soon as permissible and are taking steps to arrange "virtual placements" where possible.
