Students seeking academic credit for their internship experience may utilize IVHQ/Intern Abroad HQ’s School of Record with the University of Montana and Warren Wilson College to help facilitate credit transfer. This School of Record provides oversight of the academic process and experience, including review of syllabi, evaluating course offerings, and ensuring academic quality.

Students enroll in an equivalent course at the School of Record, complete coursework and assignments as outlined in the course syllabus, and will be issued a transcript by the School of Record. This transcript will be provided to the student’s home university. Students are encouraged to discuss their academic needs and obtain course approval prior to enrolling in the School of Record program. IVHQ/Intern Abroad HQ’s School of Record is the University of Montana and Warren Wilson College.

Intern Abroad HQ offers two different ways in which you can gain academic credit on one of our international internships:

  • We support interns to apply for academic credits via their home academic institution. This can save students the cost of expensive third-party tuition fees.
  • We can assist interns to enroll through our own School of Record programs through the University of Montana and Warren Wilson College. This is available across all our internship destinations and career fields.

We get 5 star reviews from faculty, students, and staff

Intern Abroad HQ has been our primary international internship provider since 2018. They have proven to be one of the best in terms of value and placement options in various countries, for a variety of majors and career interests. It is a relief for me and the university to know that our students will be given a robust pre-internship orientation and placement supervision, and if a problem should arise, they will work on it until a suitable solution is found.

In partnership with Intern Abroad HQ we developed a Semester in Cuzco: Internship & Spanish Language Immersion. While abroad, students can earn up to 12 credits while they take Spanish courses and complete a semester-long internship. While there are many language schools and companies to consider when planning a study abroad, Intern Abroad HQ stood out for their professionalism and willingness to accommodate our program’s needs.
