Immerse yourself in Freshfields’ work and culture.

Vacation schemes

Our three-week summer vacation schemes are an exciting way to find out more about life at Freshfields before considering applying for a training contract.

You’ll do real work, participate in group exercises, meet associates and partners, and attend social events organised by trainees. It’s your opportunity to really immerse yourself in the work and culture that Freshfields has to offer. You will receive a weekly payment of £450 and eligible students can also apply for a financial bursary to help towards living costs.

If, at the end of the three-week vacation scheme, you decide you’d like to be considered for a training contract, you can have an interview.
