An internship is a fantastic opportunity for a student or a fresh graduate to experience life inside a language service company. 

But it’s also a real chance for the company to gain extra capacity during busy times or tackle a specific project, and forge relationships with tomorrow’s industry professionals. 

The ATC’s Internship Guide has been produced in association with Croner. It guides you through considerations and practicalities for taking on and making the most out of internships in a language service company. 

In the Guide: 

  • Benefits of an internship 
  • What can interns do? 
  • The shape and structure of an internship (incl. remuneration) 
  • Recruitment 
  • Practical considerations 


What about Brexit and Erasmus+ interns from the EU? 

From 1 January 2021, new immigration rules come into force in the UK. Free movement ends for Erasmus+ students coming to the UK for an internship. 

The new immigration route for Erasmus+ students from the EU is through a new iteration of the Tier 5 Temporary Worker – Government Authorised Exchange visa scheme, with the associated fees and administration. 

Provided that the process remains as it currently is for non-EU/EEA Erasmus+ interns, all administration will be managed by the sending country’s Erasmus+ coordinator. In the UK, British Council acts as the Tier 5 sponsor.
