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.
Internships are available year-round, with flexible start dates and durations. Public holidays and seasonal work availability may impact certain start dates in some locations.

In the heart of Europe lies Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. The narrow cobblestone streets, hidden courtyards, and historic chapels make this city one of the most beautiful in the world. After the Velvet Revolution, Prague increasingly became a popular travel destination alongside bigger European cities such as Rome and Paris, but it still remains a hidden gem to be discovered in many ways. The city offers a rich cultural experience of museums, art galleries, festivals, concerts, theaters, and pubs. Prague’s central location also provides the perfect launch pad for weekend excursions to other European destinations such as Budapest, Vienna, Berlin, Bratislava, and more!
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. You can find more information about the costs and inclusions in the “Dates & Costs” section on this page.
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.
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.
All of our internships are customized, and we work with each intern to make sure we find a placement that fits their specific interests, background, experience, and goals for the internship. Your specific responsibilities during your internship will be determined further in the enrollment process and will depend on your skills and goals for the program.
Bridget is from Denver, Colorado and went to Prague to complete an internship in Occupational Therapy, working with children at an outpatient daycare center.
“It was the perfect hybrid of East and West Europe. The city of Prague has a very eerie, Gothic feel that felt so rich in history. It is a city that rivals Paris and London, but without the tourists. I think it's the perfect destination for someone who appreciates off the beaten path destinations but wants to experience Europe.”
- Kate, Marketing and Outreach Coordinator
