About Us


Internship in Brighton is a Sussex-based British company which welcomes international students from a number of countries, and especially those enrolled in the Erasmus+ programmes.

We are a leader in the placement of students in internships, work experiences and mentoring programmes with established and supportive local companies. In addition, we arrange accommodation with host families or in a shared flat, with the option to take English lessons and related student guidance, supervision and mentoring.

Those involved in our company have many years of placement experience, assuring all students the highest levels of satisfaction with all aspects of our service.

We are certified members of Sussex Chamber of Commerce and WYSE (pending), the World Youth Student and Educational Travel Confederation.

We aim to offer the best possible internships and work experiences to students and young adults who wish to undertake placements in order to better understand themselves and what they can offer in the job market. Placements may help students figure out exactly what areas of a particular career path they may excel at, or perhaps to better understand what employers demand from their young workforce.

We organise work placements for students in a wide range of vocational areas. We offer packages comprising internships and work experiences, which can be tailored to include English lessons and accommodation, as well as business seminars and cultural activities. Please follow the link for more information about our packages.

An internship offers a safe environment to learn more about the type of skills that young adults will need in their future career, so they can better understand how ready they are to start their career, and if they need to develop further skill sets before applying for jobs. As there is no competitive process involved (such as job interviews and a difficult selection process…), it usually allows students to step onto the “first rung of the ladder” and get some experience that will serve them well in the future.

Nevertheless, most interns are usually treated like other employees – especially in longer internships – and will be considered by staff members as one of the team. Sometimes, interns might even be offered a permanent position at the end of their experience, when a manager decides they are particularly suitable in the team. Other times, interns will decide to go on to further training before applying for a permanent job. And there are even times when interns may decide the work area is not for them, saving themselves the possibility of years on a “wasted” or unfulfilling job experience.

The benefits are many and you can be assured our team at IIB has the understanding and experience to help you decide what may be best for you, through dedicated mentoring sessions and discussions. An internship is an opportunity to learn and grow within a structured and supportive environment; and we highly recommend it.

Don’t take our word for it, though. Let some of our previous interns from all areas and walks of life tell you for themselves in the many testimonials and interviews we have available online. Whatever you decide, we look forward to helping you learn by real life practice: the very best way forward in your career.

We strongly support the concept that students or graduates undertaking long-term (3 months or more) internships or apprenticeships should be paid at least the UK minimum wage. We also strongly believe that grant-funded opportunities have a valuable role to play in assisting non-UK students identify and learn about another culture, learn other languages and better understand working environments, helping to prepare them for the job market.

Please note that we only offer work experience programmes for international students who meet the criteria outlined in our eligibility. We do NOT offer paid or unpaid internships to UK students.
