Explore our Internships in United Kingdom

Made up of England, Scotland, Wales, and Northern Ireland, the United Kingdom has been a global center of culture and business for centuries. Home of the Neolithic Stonehenge, Bath’s Roman spa, and centuries-old universities at Oxford and Cambridge, so much of the Western World successes can be traced back to ‘Blighty’. CRCC Asia’s Internship Program takes place in Manchester, “the capital of the North of England”, and provides an incredibly unique insight into the country as a whole. With a cost of living nearly 20% lower than that of London, Manchester has claimed the title of the fastest growing city outside of the capital. Known for it’s world-class football clubs, unique architecture, and friendly people, it’s difficult to pin point a more “British-centric” city than Manchester.

Packed with green country sides, centuries of historical significance, world famous cities, and enormous contributions to world culture – the UK is the perfect internship destination to grow and flourish.

British History

Internships in United Kingdom - Westminster

The UK has a long and varied history which is widely celebrated throughout the country. Beginning with Stonehenge, through to the Roman occupation of Britain, which ended in warfare and the rise of the medieval period. The end of the medieval period is marked by ‘the black death’ and the War of the Roses, which broughtthe rise of the Tudor period and arguably Britain’s most famous king: Henry VIII. Fast-forward to the end of the 18th century and we’ll arrive at the start of the industrial revolution which shaped modern day capitalism. A little over a hundred years later brings us to the beginning of World War One and subsequently World War Two.

All that history and more is captured around the country via monuments and museums alike, most of which are free to enter and truly fascinating.

Artistic Influence

Internships in United Kingdom - bands

The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Elton John, The Clash, Oasis, Blur, Radiohead, The Arctic Monkeys, Ed Sheeran, and Adele – British bands and artists have dominated the charts globally for decades. Britain has a vibrant music scene with artists of every genre preforming regularly – ranging from global superstars preforming stadium tours to intimate performances from up-and-coming artists.

A number of renowned arts festivals are held annually in the UK. Glastonbury, the largest greenfield music festival in the world, is held at Worthy Farm and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors each year. The Glastonbury line-up is subject to secrecy each year with much speculation as to who will play the famous pyramid stage. Another festival to watch-out for is Edinburgh Fringe. The Fringe festival is open to performers of every persuasion and includes sections for theater, comedy, dance, physical theater, circus, cabaret, children’s shows, musicals, opera, music, and spoken word. The event lasts for three weeks each year and has provided the platform for many artists to achieve national and global stardom.

Britain has been blessed with many renowned authors and poets: Charles Dickens, Jane Austin, Virginia Woolf, William Shakespeare, Edgar Alan Poe, J.R.R. Tolkien, George Orwell, and J.K. Rowling. The works of these authors have touched the lives of many. In recognition of this, they have been commemorated in the UK with museums, monuments, walking tours of their homes, and in the case of J.K. Rowling, a theme-park. Visiting these spots provides a unique look into the writes minds and explains some of the influences in their greatest works.
