About Split

Split, the second largest city in Croatia, has a special Mediterranean influence that makes it especially welcoming, cozy and warm. The city of Split was for quite some time the hidden gem of the Croatian coast, but in the past few years, more and more people have discovered its beauty and its two thousand years of history. What makes Split so special is the old city hidden inside the well-preserved walls of the Diocletian palace, the crystal-clear blue sea and the locals who spend every day drinking coffee and soaking up the year-round sunshine. Split is worth more than just a visit – so come take a walk on the seaside promenade, Riva, and live like a local on the Dalmatian coast!

Academic 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.
