Why Choose an Internship Provider?

You might be wondering what the benefits are of going through a full-time internship program provider rather than trying to do this on your own. And we don’t blame you! We respect you taking charge of your career.

One of the greatest benefits of choosing an IES Internships program is that we make sure you have everything you need: from housing and insurance to on-site support and guaranteed placements for full-time semester interns.

Explore semester-long internship programs all around the world. Looking to just get out there and work full-time already? Our full-time semester internships are perfect for recent graduates and current students who are looking to launch their careers in a global context. You'll gain 25 to 40 hours of hands-on work per week for approximately 12 weeks at an internship placement in your field. Looking to add a part-time internship to your study abroad program (for no extra cost!)> More than half of our semester study abroad programs offer you the opportunity to swap one of your elective courses for a part-time internship! You'll participate in an accompanying for-credit course to provide context for what you're learning on the job. 

Regardless of your choice, we're here to support you every step of the way.
