ABOUT INTERNATIONAL INTERNSHIPS
Many students spend hours in the classroom only to graduate with no practical experience. An international internship, however, can give students the confidence and experience needed to successfully pursue a chosen career after college.
A World Endeavors internship stands out on a resume, gives you an edge in a competitive job market, and affords you a valuable international perspective – which is attractive to employers!
YOUR INTERNSHIP GURU
The World Endeavors internship placement process is designed to ensure the best fit possible between the intern and their placement, and over 12 years of experience has made us very good at making these connections. When you apply to intern abroad, your application is reviewed by a program advisor as well as by our onsite coordinator. Your program advisor will then conduct a phone interview with you to learn more about your objectives for the program. Once you are accepted into the program, your program advisor will work with our onsite coordinator to find an internship placement that will be the best fit possible for your professional goals, language skills, and academic and work experience.
Interns must be 18 years of age or older and have completed high school (or equivalent). The World Endeavors International Internship program is open to current students, graduates, and professionals. Internship placement opportunities increase with experience or relevant coursework. Please contact World Endeavors for more information.
Do you need your internship to fulfill an academic requirement, or would you like to earn academic credits for your internship experience? World Endeavors is here to help. About half of World Endeavors interns complete their internships for credit, and our advisors are experienced in coordinating internships to meet students’ academic requirements.

Do you want to earn academic credit for your international internship? Nearly half of World Endeavors participants earn credit while interning abroad. Many students are required to participate in an internship to fulfill a requirement for their degree program. World Endeavors works closely with students and their academic advisors to ensure that our program meets those requirements. If you don’t fall into that category there is another exciting option for you. Through our collaboration with University of California Berkeley, students can earn UC Berkeley credit by taking one of two online courses while interning abroad.
