International Internships

Why do an internship abroad? It is a great experience to help you stand out from your peers and you will gain extremely important global experience. You will find out what it is like to work in a particular field in a different culture. 

Planning for an international internship requires planning. Start 6-12 months in advance of when you would like to go. Consider doing an internship fall or spring semester in addition to the more traditional summer semester. 

Many of the online sites listed here require a fee to help you secure an internship. You can also get an internship on your own but you will be required to do much of the leg work.
