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 in England live in shared apartments with shared bedroom, bathroom and kitchen, or with local host families in a single room. All housing options are located within walking distance of an Underground station for convenient access to everything London has to offer.
England is a European nation, but it also maintains its own strong cultural identity. This is a country that has kindly shared The Beatles, Doctor Who, and Shakespeare with the rest of the world. Many of the world’s most influential people, organizations, and institutions call England home. Life in London is exhilarating and fast paced. Weekends offer a plethora of cultural events and activities, and, for many interns, the biggest challenge is choosing between so many exciting options. As a global capital for culture, business, entertainment, and even cuisine, London offers something for everyone. Interns in London live like locals, experiencing everything that life in this bustling international city has to offer.
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.
“I gained so much from living in London this past summer. I traveled to 8 major cities, met so many new friends from all over the world, and had a wonderful internship experience. I had the time of my life!”
