International Internships in Psychology
Psychology internships are an integral part of many psychology students’ education - whether you’re an undergraduate student looking to gain practical experience or a graduate student wanting to get a headstart on your career. Even if a psychology internship isn’t part of your ciriculum, all students can benefit from the experience of being supervised by a licensed psychologist or psychology professional before beginning their careers. Especially considering that while many job opportunities exist for those with a bachelor’s degree in psychology, many of those positions require six months to a year of professional experience.
With over 13,000 openings for psychology professionals expected every year until 2030¹, there’s never been a better time to jumpstart your career with a psychology internship. Through Intern Abroad HQ, you’ll learn about psychological diagnoses and treatmentswhile improving access to mental health services worldwide.
Whether you’re seeking a career at the bachelor’s degree level or short-term employment before applying for graduate school, a psychology internship looks great on a resume or graduate school application. The hands-on training offered by international psychology internships provide each student with a real-world context to apply what they’ve learned.

”I took an online international psychotherapy/counseling internship, working with US expatriates in Spain. I originally chose this program because of problems finding an internship locally. However, I found that interning abroad widened my global outlook and understanding of the mental health professions internationally. I had really good clients that gave me a wide range of experiences in mental health counseling and psychotherapy.”
