    Nope, if there were most people would be vying for them. You're going to have to do some serious networking/searching to find what you're looking for.

    There aren't plenty of lists for the types of internships you're searching for (i.e. ones to do before your penultimate summer internship) for firms in the UK either.. If what you're asking is about penultimate summer internships then the usual names will be available at their HK/Singapore office.

    I was asking for lists of internships in Asia, 1st/2nd/penultimate year. Yes, there are plenty of lists of internships on offer.

    First of all those links were unnecessary as the programs on offer are common knowledge to anyone interested in the IB path. Second of all, the lists don't give any indication of 'internships' - spring weeks/insight days aren't internships.

    Third of all, if you want to do an actual internship in FO IB anytime before your penultimate year, there will be 0 structured programs or lists available. You'll need to network your way to one yourself mate; whether in the UK or Asia.

    As I said, the usual names are happy to take in applications to their penultimate summer programs in their HK/Singapore/Dubai office from UK students.

    Im going to London for the internship and they're not paid. You have to pay your fee first and then you'll be given interviews. The prices are different, London is a bit more expensive than Shanghai or Beijing I think, It's a bit more expensive for the 2 month programs but its not double. I don't think I'm going to mention Absolute in my CV because it looks like you've got the internship the easy way.
    These programs are so pointless.. Paying money to go and sit in an office not gaining any practical experience whatsoever? I'd rather spend that money travelling

    What credentials do you have, why weren't you able to find one normally? I believe FDM group help find you a full time role, but don't charge upfront, and take like 25% of fees, so that's a MUCH better deal IMO.

    You don't sit in an office and do absolutely nothing. In the UK, getting internships at Law firms is very rare. What you get is either vacation schemes that last 2 weeks only and insight days that last from 1-2 days. Getting an internship for a month is way more appreciated than having a 2 week experience where you don't even get to experience enough to decide whether you want to apply to the firm or not. And it's honestly up to you what you do with you money. I have travelled my entire life and now want a good job so I'd rather spend on gaining experience that is not easily offered by firms (you only get a month long internship if you have really good networks). Thanks for your opinion though

    Does it not bother you that you've essentially bought most of the experience on your CV? I still fail to see the point in buying an internship when there are plenty of small firms willing to take you on regardless. All those people without the funds to do this have managed before...
