Business In The Arts offers places to students with a strong academic background in the liberal arts and fluency in English.
Business In The Arts is a new innovative summer programme which we anticipate will be very popular with study abroad students. As a result, competition for places is high, and early application is recommended.
Applicants should provide official evidence of a strong academic background (equivalent to a cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale, for example). This should be accompanied by a letter of recommendation from a professor who has taught you at your home university and a personal statement detailing your interest in the programme and your career aspirations in the creative arts industry.
You should also include a CV/resume, which will assist in placing you in an internship that is in line with your previous experience and interests.
The majority of participants on the Business In The Arts programme will be humanities or liberal arts majors, particularly those studying for degrees in drama, theatre, dance, music or related creative disciplines.
Due to the course content, Business In The Arts is not suitable for Business majors.
Your personal statement provides you with the opportunity to demonstrate your motivation to embark on the programme. You should detail any experiences you have been involved in which you feel are relevant to your application. It should also explain your aims, objectives and desired career progression in relation to the internship component of the programme.
To be eligible students must have completed at least two years of study at their home institution.
Full fluency in English is a prerequisite as students will often answer telephones, take notes, and write letters, briefing papers, press releases and reports.
Please note: all non-EU/EEA applicants who are offered a place on this programme will be required to apply for a Tier 4 Student Visa in order to travel to the UK. We will advise you how to go about applying for this visa if your application is successful.
