Why Remote?

University of Pennsylvania – Virtual English Language Program

At IES®, we’ve been offering quality, part-time internships for nearly 60 years and full-time internships with the introduction of IES Internships in 2013. You could kinda say we’re experts…and now, we’re bringing the internships to you with the IES® Remote Internship program. You’ll get the same hands-on (just not literally), professional experience you’d get abroad, while also gaining the remote working skills that are oh-so-important right now, plus an international component to boot.

Participating IES Abroad Destinations

In addition to choosing your internship industry and sharing your placement preferences, once you've applied, you can also indicate if you'd prefer that your host company or organization be based in one of the following IES Abroad destinations (and be sure to check back, as destinations may be added or vary by term). This may be especially useful if you need an internship conducted in a particular language or culture for your major, minor, or global learning requirement at your school.
