Intern Abroad Programs
Our intern abroad program adds value to your resume and let you access great learning potential. Many university students take our internship program as a part of their co-op degree or for school credit. Many works allow flexible working schedule, so that you can either work full time or part time depending on your preferences. Like our volunteer abroad program, accommodation and meals are included.
Our volunteer abroad locations usually also have internships available. Volunteer abroad and intern abroad are very similar programs, but intern abroad program is usually for students taking it for school credit or someone looking for an internship experience for their resume. The main difference between intern abroad and volunteer abroad programs is the focus from the participant’s point of view. Intern abroad programs has more of a learning focus and less of a contributing focus, although both learning and contributing elements are present in both programs. For example, pre-med students or new graduates are more likely to enroll into an intern abroad program, while experienced medical doctors/nurses are more likely to enroll into a volunteer abroad program.

Intern Abroad Requirements

The success of doing a project abroad also depends on you.
