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 stay with Moroccan host families, where they share space, build relationships, practice their language skills, and learn about traditional culture, food, home rituals, and customs. Interns are expected to display respect and consideration for the host family. Living with a host family ensures total immersion, which can be both challenging and rewarding, but ultimately provides the most authentic experience of Morocco.
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.
