Jointly with LSE Careers, the IO administers the Tata Social Internship which offers LSE students the opportunity to undertake an 8 week project with the Tata Group in India. These projects have either a development, social enterprise, environmental, sustainable or CSR focus and involve a significant research element.

Past Internship

The Thailand Government Scholarship scheme was a partnership between the Royal Thai Embassy in London and LSE, giving students the opportunity to visit Thailand for up to two months to conduct any project of their interest on Thailand as part of their study programme at LSE. The Scholarship aimed to promote better understanding and knowledge of Thailand.
