Summer internships for college students
If you are a student or college graduate, summer internships provide an excellent opportunity to put your classroom learning into practice. Internships provide real-world settings where trial, error, learning and reflection are encouraged and supported.
As an intern, you’ll follow an experiential learning program that’s designed to foster the acquisition of practical skills. This approach is especially relevant for resume-building and better employability, so all interns receive documentation (upon completion) which summarizes your personalized internship learning outcomes.
Entry-level opportunities are available, with flexible start date and duration options, so scheduling your summer internship will be a piece of cake. Affordability of all internship programs is a top priority, in addition to superior learning support, meaningful community internship placements, and professional guidance at every step.
Whether you can join a program for just 2 weeks - or even up to 12 or 24 weeks - you’ll receive the full guidance of a dedicated Internships Manager to help you plan and prepare for your internship experience.
