What faculty and interns have to say:
“My primary focus during the semester abroad internship program was to improve my Spanish. I’m currently working towards a Bachelor’s degree in Spanish and began looking for study abroad programs through my university about a year ago. I found this program and thought it was perfect for me. The program allowed me to live abroad and gain a cultural experience as well as improve my Spanish speaking abilities.” - Alex Curtis, Southern Utah University Semester Abroad Program
“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.” - Valentina Rasori, Event Management in Bali
