International Internships

Interested in working for a company or organization while abroad?

An international internship is a great way to build your résumé and show employers that you are capable of working in a diverse and challenging environment. Other benefits and skills that can be enhanced while interning abroad include:

  • Improved communication skills
  • Adaptability
  • Able to handle ambiguity
  • Respect and understanding for different world views
  • Improved problem solving skills
  • Enhanced language skills
  • Increased self-confidence and independence
  • Network with professionals in your field around the world

Depending on the program abroad, students can either just complete an internship while abroad, or combine coursework and an internship. Many international internships count for credit, but are unpaid. Internships have separate applications, prerequisites, and GPA requirements from the university you are applying to abroad. In most cases, the internships are set up by the affiliate partner, and include an in-country interview to establish the exact internship on-site.
