International Internships in Architecture & Landscape Architecture

Interns who work in architecture and landscape architecture face a diverse field. Some architecture interns help develop infrastructure projects in impoverished urban areas, while others work for private design companies. Interns in this field assist with project design, preparing presentations, and maintaining equipment. They may also receive training in drafting and model making. Many interns also do some research and administrative support within the office.

WHAT TO EXPECT ON AN ARCHITECTURE & LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTURE INTERNSHIP

Applicants who want to work abroad in this field should be self-directed and have a strong interest in architecture. Successful interns in architecture and landscape architecture should be creative and ready to come up with new ideas while also being responsive to the needs of the project or client. Good interpersonal and communication skills are very important. Depending on the internship placement, some familiarity with drafting and 3-D software may be helpful.

HIGHLIGHTS & BENEFITS

  • Working abroad in this field gives interns the chance to see how architects and landscape architects work within different climates, geographical conditions, and design traditions.
  • Interns learn how to adjust to all the varying conditions involved in the field themselves firsthand.
  • There’s no better way for aspiring architects to broaden their understanding of what design can do while gaining experience in a working architectural office.

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.
