Interning or volunteering abroad is a great way to get involved, gain professional experience, and add an international flair to your resume. These unique opportunities are included as part of many types of education abroad programs.
For example, a faculty-led program may involve a volunteer project at a local school, or a semester study abroad program may offer students the opportunity to participate in credit-bearing internship placement alongside their other coursework. Additionally, some programs (generally during the summer) offer stand-alone internship or service-learning placements.
These opportunities are generally unpaid, but they may offer credit.
