Grinnell in London
Grinnell-in-London currently offers up to fifteen slots for internships, up to three in the British parliament and up to twelve at-large. Because the number of students in our program who can serve as interns is regulated by the UK Border Agency, selection of students for internship slots is usually competitive. Selection is based on students' academic records, the viability of matching a student's interests with the kinds of internships available in London, and the suitability of a student's background for a proposed internship.
Outline of the Semester Schedule
The Fall 2015 semester schedule below provides an overview that is similar in future semesters. Students are asked to limit outside plans until after the first several weeks in London. Details about the semester, such as dates and destinations of field trips, are finalized then. Everything below will start and end two days earlier in the Fall 2016 schedule.
A student discovers that study abroad doesn’t necessarily end after one semester.
Applying for Grinnell-in-London or Grinnell-in-Washington is one-step process, unlike with other off-campus study programs. The deadline for GIL is therefore later than the general Grinnell OCS application deadline.
