Note: UK immigration law requires foreign students who will be pursuing any type of work experience/internship (paid or unpaid) to secure a student visa. A visa is an endorsement or stamp placed by officials of a foreign country on a U.S. passport that makes it possible for the bearer to visit that country. If you are planning to participate in the internship program, it is your responsibility to secure a student visa from a British Consulate in the United States prior to the start of the program. Securing a visa can be a lengthy process; therefore, it is recommended that you begin the process early as it can take time to gather the required documentation. As visa requirements and application procedures can change rapidly, you are encouraged to read the UK Border Agency guidance regarding Tier IV Adult Student Visas at following website: Guidance on application for UK visa as Tier 4 student
