International Internships*

Are you interested in building your job skills? Do you want the opportunity to live and work abroad?

Doing an internship overseas is a fantastic way to:

  • develop transferable skills
  • learn to engage cross-culturally
  • gain competency in another language

These skills and experiences will help you demonstrate that you are globally literate, an attribute that is becoming increasingly important to employers.

From non-profit Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) to high-level corporations in business, journalism, engineering, the arts, and more, you will find that there are opportunities all over the world for you to gain practical training and job skills in an international setting.

Start your search on the Cowboys Abroad portal:

  • Choose Advanced Search
  • Find Internship Available
  • Choose Yes from the drop down
  • Click the Search button

This will provide you with a list of programs that offer internships to students.  While we try to provide as much information here as possible, it is not a full, comprehensive listing (some programs offer internships as part of a semester-long study abroad or exchange program).

For additional opportunities, do a search at!**

Use this website to search for internships in your discipline and by country.

  • Be aware that many, if not most, of the student internships available are unpaid.
  • In some cases, there may also be a fee associated with doing the internship through these program providers.
  • Participating in an international internship can be an excellent experience to add to a resume. Certain internships can help with skill development in a particular area and/or job preparedness.

REMEMBER! The International Program Office and its staff are not responsible for advising on departmental or College requirements nor ensuring the transfer of internship credits to your major. This is something that you individually should discuss with your faculty advisor.
