The health and safety of our participants is our highest priority. We are meticulously monitoring travel recommendations and restrictions for each of our program countries, and will only facilitate programs where we can ensure our participants' safety. World Endeavors is implementing a number of initiatives to ensure our participants can continue to be transformed through enriching, rewarding and safe experiences around the world. Please contact us if you have any specific questions or concerns.


Don’t panic if you don’t see your career field listed! Our advisors are proud of their ability to find great internships in unique and highly specialized fields, and we have a long and impressive track record setting up “one-in-a-million” internships. Contact World Endeavors today if you are looking for a special or customized internship.


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!


The World Endeavors internship placement process is designed to ensure the best fit possible between the intern and their placement, and over 17 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.



  • World Endeavors interns should be 18 years or older and should have a passport valid for at least 6 months from the start of their program.
  • Keep in mind that all countries have different visa restrictions for varying types of passports.
  • It is recommended to have a background in your desired internship field, but not absolutely required. Internship placement opportunities increase with experience or relevant coursework.

Please note that each program has it own requirements for eligibility. 


Intern For Credit

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.University of California Berkeley
