Internships Abroad

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 developing countries. This is a chance for you to gain first-hand practical knowledge in your field of interest. You’ll also get to share your ideas and contribute to the placement, while learning what you’re truly capable of.


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


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


During your internship work abroad, you’ll also improve valuable skills like communication and planning. This is also an opportunity to enhance your capabilities and build an international network. You’ll be working and connecting 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 are particularly valuable if you’re about to join university, or if you are a university student or a recent graduate. This experience will boost your CV and set you apart for future employers or university admission panels.

 

Requirements vary depending on the internship you choose, but for most internships, you can join without any specific qualifications or expertise. You'll work alongside experienced professionals and you'll be guided every step of the way if you need it.

 

Throughout your project, you’ll be supervised by our friendly local staff. They’ll be available 24/7 to support you and guide you through the work you do.

 

If an internship is not quite what you're looking for, then take a look at our volunteer projects 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 university students. You can make the most of the holiday and use the time to get work experience and give your CV an extra edge. A summer internship abroad will also give you lots to talk about in interviews and applications.
