Genuinely shocking. You need to speak 2 languages, have a degree, AND know multiple programs to qualify for a FREE 3 month internship in LONDON where you will also have to pay out the nose commuting there if you don't already live there.....How ridiculous!
My, how time flies....

Oh, please let me bring my degree, skills and knowledge to work for you in exchange for... uh... more skills and knowledge?  Umm, no thanks.  If I'm the person described here, I already have everything I need to actually get paid.  Like, real money.

I found it on Reddit and they were certainly gathering pitchforks and torches there.  I'd bet the person who posted it (probably and unpaid intern themselves) is out of a job.

Sadly, I bet they aren't. I imagine they will defend their stance somehow.

While this is the worst "opportunity" I've seen, the sad thing is that I've seen a lot of similar very special internships in my UK job hunt. And almost all of them seem to be in the London area! I'm against all unpaid internships, unless the intern is a student getting school credit.

I do think even the majority of students here seem to get paid internships during uni! I think the US should totally follow suit! I remember in uni having an internship that was just another thing on top of my classes that I didn't get paid for so I had to balance classes, an internship, AND a job.
