Convention de stage

If you have secured an internship outside the UK, your employer may require you and QMUL to complete a 'Convention de Stage' or ‘Internship Agreement’ document.

The first thing you need to do is to ask your employer whether they will accept QMUL's standard internship agreement. If they will, then this makes things a lot quicker and easier for you and for QMUL.

Document A – QMUL Standard Internship Agreement [PDF 471KB]

  • If your employer will not accept QMUL's standard internship agreement, insisting that their own version is completed instead, then we will do our best to accommodate this, but the process will take longer and can be time-consuming for you and for us. If this is the case, please download Document B [PDF 421KB] and work through the instructions.

This agreement doesn’t cover your insurance. You need to take out fully comprehensive insurance for the whole period spent abroad on your placement, covering medical and associated expenses, personal accident, and possessions. In either case, please start this process as early as you can so that it doesn't delay the start date of your internship.

  • If your employer is happy to sign off our QMUL document BUT you will graduate during or before the internship, we can still help. Please complete the following form, which states that you are not a QMUL student for the duration of the internship: Document C (English) [PDF 463KB] or Document C (French) [PDF 463KB].

Please Note: We can only sign the agreement for up to one year after you graduate.

For CCLS students:

If you are a CCLS student you need to use a different Convention De Stage form. Please download the French version [DOC 57KB] here and the English version [DOC 63KB] here. Please also download and read carefully the information and procedure document [PDF 497KB] which tells you how to get your form completed. The completed documents should be sent to If you are a CCLS student and have any queries please contact the PG Law PD Team using the same email address.
