Established in 1998, the Foundation for International Education (FIE) is a private, independent, and not-for-profit educational exchange organization offering semester and summer internship options. Located in London, a thriving multicultural city boasting cutting-edge music, art, and fashion. FIE facilities are located in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea.
This program is organized by Eller College of Management but is open to all UA students. It is a nine week program, where students will take a British Life & Culture course, an international internship course, and complete an Internship during this time.
Eller students will receive direct credit for ENGL 260 and the international internship course (BNAD 393A).
Students who are not in Eller will also get direct credit for ENGL 260 but will have to work out credit with their home department for the internship. If you do not get approval from your home department for the internship, then you will receive BNAD credit for the internship and this cannot be changed after you return, so please plan accordingly.
