Right, sorry to be a killjoy but you are basically making sure to only select RICH people by having these kind of placements / internships. Nobody who does not have considerable funds or family who already lives there can live in London without being paid. Nobody. It is outrageous that this has become a normal thing in the UK. The opportunities are not "Internships" - they are an excuse to exploit students and young graduates. An internship should be paid, as is required by law in most European countries. I hope this law will be passed here soon too. Guys, don't sell yourself for less than you are worth. There are always ways to do paid internships. By selling your labour cheaply, i.e. in this case for free, you are devaluing yourself.
