International Internships in Communications & Media

Communications and media internships abroad provide valuable opportunities for individuals to immerse themselves in diverse cultural contexts while honing their skills in areas such as journalism, public relations, digital media, and broadcasting. Interns gain firsthand experience working with international media outlets, communication agencies, or production studios, contributing to content creation, social media campaigns, news reporting, or multimedia projects. By engaging in these roles, participants develop a deep understanding of global communication trends, storytelling techniques, and audience engagement strategies, all of which enhance their proficiency in conveying messages effectively across cultures and platforms.

Throughout these internships, individuals may be involved in conducting interviews, crafting compelling narratives, managing social media accounts, or assisting in video production. This hands-on experience allows interns to refine their communication skills, adapt to different media landscapes, and learn to tailor messages for diverse audiences. Moreover, the cross-cultural exposure fosters a well-rounded perspective on media ethics, cultural sensitivities, and the role of communication in shaping international perceptions and interactions. Ultimately, communications and media internships abroad equip participants with the expertise and intercultural awareness needed to excel in a rapidly evolving global media landscape.

Intern Abroad FAQs

Where will I intern?

While some organizations have a list of open internships and place applicants in those positions, we work in the opposite direction. We first learn about you, your interests, goals and experience, and then actively pursue the internship that provides you with experience directly relevant to your future career. 

What will I be doing at my internship?

Our internships are customized to fit each individual’s goals, interests, and skill level. We consider all of these things and then make a placement accordingly. Therefore, we don’t have specific internships “set aside” waiting for people to fill them. We have placed interns in both small and large companies, but due to confidentiality of our host companies and organizations we are not able to provide a list of companies.

If I am accepted into the program, am I guaranteed an internship?

We are confident in our ability to find impactful,  skill-building internships. If you are accepted into our program, we guarantee that we will find you a placement in your first or second choice field.

Do I need to have experience?

We arrange rewarding internship placements for people with all levels of experience. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an expert in your field, a successful experience requires a positive approach and a mind open to learning, growing and strengthening your skills.

Are the internships paid?

We really wish we could offer paid internships, but all of the internships we coordinate are unpaid placements. Paid internships abroad are few and far-between, as they require a different type of visa that is difficult to attain, and they also require sponsorship by the host company, which is quite costly for them. The goal of our program is to provide meaningful, hands-on experience in your specific profession or field of study that will give you a competitive edge in the job market and make you valuable to employers who are globally minded. If you are seeking a placement to help you gain international experience, improve your skills in your field and enhance your resume, our program provides the perfect opportunity.

What companies do you work with?

Our internships are customized to fit each individual’s goals, interests, and skill level. We consider all of these things and then make a placement accordingly. Therefore, we don’t have specific internships “set aside” waiting for people to fill them. We have placed interns in both small and large companies, but due to confidentiality of our host companies and organizations we are not able to provide a list of companies.

Is there a cost to particiate?

We strive to provide immersive, life changing, and professionally rewarding programs for our interns. Our programs are designed as a comprehensive “program” instead of just the internship so that we can provide a full experience for our participants. The program fees we charge include the in-country expenses (housing, insurance, orientation, etc.) and also the dedicated work that goes behind finding a customized, one-of-a-kind, international internship placement.
