    The UK offers opportunities for international students to do internships as long as it does not take more than a third of their studies. However, part-time postgraduate students and those studying below degree level courses are not allowed to do internships. While it is easier to find an unpaid internship, one can still get a hold of paid internships.
    While there are many sites where one can gain access to available internship positions, one must be careful not to visit pages that are not valid. The following are the best sites to check for an internship opening in the UK.
