Known as the “Paris of the South,” Buenos Aires provides the perfect setting for interns who are looking for that European feel, but wish to live and intern in South America. After the economic crisis of 2001, Argentina’s economy slowly began to grow. Argentina’s economy paired with its vibrant culture gives interns a unique glimpse into their field of interest while preparing them for a future career.
Our World Endeavors Intern in Argentina Program is a great fit for those looking to make progress on their future careers while enhancing their Spanish language skills. Argentina provides its own unique culture by combining South American traditions with European influence and engages visitors with warmth and hospitality.
ABOUT BUENOS AIRES
In the far corner of South America rests Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. Visitors consider it the most European city in South America, but Buenos Aires dances with Latin flair. Although European immigrants shaped the city centuries ago, its culture has taken on a shape of its own. Artists cover drab walls with splashes of bright pastels, particularly prominent in the La Boca neighborhood. Even the presidential palace, aptly named la Casa Rosada, boasts a bright rose color from top to bottom.
Fill the days by attending antique markets, sampling street food, listening to street musicians, or touring the famous modern art museums. Meet up with friends in the evening to enjoy a classic Argentine steak dinner followed by a glass of Fernet. Afterwards, attend a tango class or catch a fútbol game with some friends. No matter your interests, there is never a dull moment in Buenos Aires!

"Argentina is such a fascinating, beautiful, confusing, and diverse country, and being able to witness it firsthand was one of the highlights of my college career. Living and learning in another country was so rewarding, and the experience gave me a whole new excitement for life. Now I always look for opportunities to practice my Spanish and the other skills I learned there. I'm so glad I made the leap to study in Argentina!"

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.
World Endeavors interns live in a single room in a shared apartment. Apartments have shared bathroom and kitchen facilities, and interns can purchase groceries and prepare meals at home. Student dorm and home stay accommodations may be available, please contact World Endeavors for more information.
Internships are available year-round, and each placement is customized for the participant. This means World Endeavors interns can choose when they would like to start their program, the duration of their internship and their desired field. Due to holidays, traditional vacation schedules, and seasonal work availability, there might be better times than others to intern in a specific location or in a specific field.
