Join us on one of our two-month international internships in Manchester, one of Europe’s most creative centers. Immerse yourself in an exciting and friendly city famous for its history, music and sport.

Why Manchester?

As one of the fastest growing UK cities with the largest population of students, Manchester is a quickly evolving city with a pioneering spirit. The city has a rich historical past kept up through museums and tours, as well as an avid love for sports and rich competition from hosting both the Manchester City football club and the Manchester United football club. Young adults in the area have taken the lead shaping their own culture by revitalizing the local music and art scenes. If during the weekend you want a quick getaway to London, Scotland, or the English countryside, Manchester’s accessible public transit makes it possible. A great cup of tea and an authentic British experience is easy to find within the old brick streets of Manchester.

Manchester’s Sectors

More than 85% of Manchester’s workforce is involved in the expansive and diverse sales, finance, and service industries. Outside of these is the thriving creative digital and marketing industry. Manchester has also recently invested more in its renewable energy and environmental technology industries. The wide variety of intern opportunities within Manchester is just one perk of the energetic and competitive spirit of the city.

1. Apply

In order to begin your internship, you will need to submit an electronic application to our program. You can do this on our Apply page.

2. Review

Upon receiving your application, it will be reviewed by your nearest Regional Team who will assess your suitability for our programs.

Once your application is reviewed, our Admissions Advisers will reach out to you via email to schedule an Advising Session.

3. Advising Session

Those applicants who are successful at the application review stage will be invited for an Advising Session with one of our Admissions Advisers. The Advising Session will be 20-30 minutes long where we will ask:

  • Your interest in our programs
  • Your relevant past working and voluntary experience
  • Your sector choices and preferred type of host company
  • Your personal and professional goals

4. Program Confirmation

A few days after your Advising Session, you’ll be informed of the outcome of your application to join our internship program by email. If you are successful, you’ll receive an offer which will formally invite you to join the program and details on how to confirm your place with a Program Acceptance Fee.

5. Placement Confirmation

Once you have submitted your Acceptance Fee and First Installment, our Placement teams will officially start reaching out to our Host Company partners to confirm your company and job description with our Placement Supervisors. The sooner you confirm your placement on our programs, the sooner we can get you more information on your placement! Please note that early applicants get priority for most competitive host company opportunities.

With CRCC Asia’s Placement First Guarantee, you will only be required to pay the final installment when you have received a confirmed placement from your Adviser.

If you have any questions about this procedure please feel free to contact us for more information.

6. Safe Travels!

Your Adviser will work with you to ensure we have all of your relevant travel details (flights, insurance, special requests, etc) and prepare you for your arrival in your program destination.
