Starts at 11.00am
The Young Political Leader Summer Internship Live Online gives students aged 15-18 a 360-degree work experience in International Politics, from the comfort of their own home. Over the course of 5 days, you will be working with key figures from the world of Politics - including representatives of the UN, the House of Commons, the Foreign Office and high-profile NGOs - ‘Live Online’ via our interactive platform.
Throughout the Internship, you will follow a rapidly-escalating international conflict simulation which will culminate in you representing a country at a ‘Model UN’ Security Council meeting and then conducting peace talks. Our experts will coach you on the key aspects of diplomacy and conflict-resolution; your task will be to deliver the best possible outcome for your country by advising your country's leader, negotiating with other countries, and representing your nation at the UN. You will also become an MP, asking ministers tough questions at Parliamentary Question time and debating a new bill in the House of Commons.
You will also have the opportunity to network with our Politics experts and ask them all your burning questions, just as you would in-person.
Join us for a truly unique experience that will serve as an outstanding differentiator on your university and job applications and set you up for a successful future in Politics.
The programme involves a mixture of interactive simulations, exercises and Q&A sessions delivered via our state-of-the-art, interactive online platform. The internship is delivered LIVE by experienced professionals.
