International Internship Programs

Gain practical work experience overseas and discover what you're capable of

Join one of our internships abroad and learn directly from experienced local professionals in under-resourced countries. This is a chance to gain first-hand practical knowledge in your field of interest. You’ll also get to share your ideas and contribute to the placement where you work. Discover what you’re capable of through experiential learning.


We’ll help you choose internship work overseas that matches your requirements and level of experience as closely as possible. This will ensure you get the most out of your placement. We offer a wide variety of short-term and long-term internship options. Whether you want to learn more about law and human rights or want to shadow doctors in a hospital, we’ll help you select the perfect internship.


Internship work experience overseas is a great way to equip yourself with new knowledge and skills. You’ll also gain experience in your chosen field and it will help you decide if a specific career is really for you.


During your internship work abroad, you’ll improve valuable skills like communication and planning. Use this opportunity to enhance your capabilities and build an international network. You’ll get to connect with local professionals and interns from around the world.

Is internship work overseas right for me?

Our internships abroad are open to people of all ages and from all walks of life. They’ll benefit you if you’re about to go to college, currently studying, or have recently graduated. The experience you gain will boost your resume and set you apart for future employers or in college applications.

 

Requirements vary depending on the internship you choose. You'll work alongside experienced professionals and you'll be guided every step of the way if you need it.

 

Our staff will be available 24/7 to support and guide you through all your work and activities.

 

If an internship is not quite what you're looking for, then take a look at our volunteer programs abroad. You can work in ChildcareConservation and more.

Summer Internships Abroad

Summer is a popular time of year to intern abroad, especially for high school graduates and college students. Make the most of the summer break - get work experience and give your resume the edge it needs. A summer internship abroad will also give you lots to talk about in interviews and applications.
