The Czech Republic is an ideal destination for interns looking to experience Europe through an unconventional lens. Located in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic has a long history of both Eastern and Western influence. While aesthetically Eastern European, the Czech Republic has mirrored their Western European neighbors in economic development. This relatively new, yet highly developed nation is bustling with opportunities for international interns while providing a unique culture to experience in their free time. Whatever your field of interest may be, an internship in the Czech Republic is sure to provide career-enhancing experience in Europe that can’t be duplicated.
Participants in World Endeavors Intern in the Czech Republic program are not only interested in exploring Eastern Europe, but are interested in using their skills to gain new professional experience within a fascinating culture.
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!
“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

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.
