Attention: Traineeships in the United Kingdom

Please note that since Brexit you usually need a visa for internships in the UK, which means additional organizational and financial effort. Please contact the receiving institution directly if you have any questions about this.

Please also note that since March 2023 we are no longer able to apply for the so-called Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS) for you at the British Council, which you need for the visa application. If your employer is not authorized to issue the CoS, it is possible that you will not be able to obtain a visa for your stay.
