How to earn course credit and meet your academic requirements on an Intern Abroad HQ internship

You could save thousands of dollars in tuition fees by gaining course credit toward your degree through an internship abroad or remote internship program with Intern Abroad HQ.

College Course Credit with Intern Abroad HQ.

How to earn academic credit through your international internship:

Intern Abroad HQ’s partnership with the University of Montana in the United States allows us to provide academic credit to interns who have completed an international internship with us. This is available across all of our internship destinations and career fields, including remote internships.

Intern Abroad HQ offers academic credit for your practical, real world experience outside of the classroom. These credits may be applied worldwide. The average number of internship hours per week varies by program. The minimum duration requirement for most internships is two weeks. This enables interns to obtain at least 45 hours, which equates to 1 credit, applied via the University of Montana.

How it works:

  • Students enroll in an internship course through the University of Montana, complete self-reflections and written assignments during their internship experience, and receive a letter grade based on their submitted coursework. Official transcripts can be requested to allow for easy credit transfer back to your home institution.

  • Students are encouraged to discuss the opportunity with their academic advisor and obtain course approval prior to enrollment.

What faculty and interns have to say:

”I knew that I had to do an internship in order for me to graduate on time. I applied to more than 30 companies for internships and then began to receive rejection emails. I was so worried because I really wanted to graduate on time, so I started doing research and found Intern Abroad HQ. I made the decision to use them and that was the best decision I ever made - my internship experience with Intern Abroad HQ was great!”

”My primary focus during the semester abroad internship program was to improve my Spanish. I’m working towards a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish so this program was perfect for me. The program allowed me to live abroad and gain cultural experience as well as improve my Spanish speaking abilities.”

”I had the time of my life and I will never forget my internship in Bali. I met amazing people and had a great time while doing a compulsory internship for my university! What I really liked about Intern Abroad HQ is that they helped us with everything from the visa to insurance and accommodation.”
