Sports Internships Abroad

If you’re passionate about sports and eager to share your knowledge with others, a sports internship abroad in this field can broaden your experience and skill-sets. Teaching physical education to others can be used as an effective means to provide positive role-modelling, while encouraging self-confidence, leadership skills, and teamwork. Combine a sports focus with an education-based internship, to develop your skills working with children and youth. Otherwise, explore our other internship opportunities that are more specifically related to education and healthcare.
