    Hello, Good Afternoon!

    I'm a Part-Time Criminology student currently in my 3rd year of university (total 4 years) looking for a paid summer (2014) internship/placement in LONDON only. I realise that most internship applications have closed, but there are many placement offers still open.

    I could do with a bit of direction please.

    I've searched but I cannot seem to find any placements relating to my course or in relation to any of the sectors listed below. Maybe I'm not looking in the right places? I know there are many out there, so If you have any web links, telephone numbers or Emails that I could contact, I would be very grateful.

    I just want a 6 week or more paid placement/internship that can provide me with valid work experience. My CV is filled with jobs such as Sainsbury's, M&S and other customer service/retail jobs I've worked in over the last 2 years but I really need to start working or gaining experience in jobs related to my course or in a professional environment. I want to be ready for when I graduate next year, or a least in a better position to gain a good job.

    - Legal Institutions

    - Shadowing a Judge, Solicitor or Barrister
    - Working in Parliament or with a member
    - Home Office UK
    - Accounting, Finance or Marketing Sector
    - PWC
    - Goldman Sachs
    ........ or any other professional job.

    You may ask "why paid?"
    Answer: I am financially independent and as a part-student (who started in 2011 before the new fee's) I am not entitled to any student loans. I do have a part-time weekend job which is just about enough to support me. So long story short, I could do with another paid job

    SORRY FOR THE ESSAY!

    Your unlikely to find anything in Parliament over summer as Parliament shuts down then. And they don't offer paid short term placements except the summer diversity programme (for those from a low income backgbround).

    Ah, thats a shame. Yes, I've had a look a the Diversity programme, however all apart from one applications have closed.

    Thank you for your help
