A London Bias?

One of the most frequent criticisms of internships is their location. If you want internships in journalism, the media, politics and the third-sector, you would be hard pushed to find them outside of London.

This graph, from the illuminating Milburn report, highlights some of those sectors not often considered.

Does the fact that 90% of law internships are found in London reveal a geographical bias? Or that law firms in Leeds, for example, have yet to develop an internship culture?

The Banking and Finance stats are interesting – we are actively looking for finance interns to tell us what they get up to! I would have assumed that the majority of those internships would be found in the City. IT and Engineering – well – they offer some comfort to those not living in our capital.

We will soon be starting a comprehensive survey for all our readers to take. Location will be one factor we are looking at. Watch this space.
