Remote Internships - intern on your own terms

Get career ready and enhance your resume with international work experience – without having to leave home. Our affordable remote internships are designed for students, graduates and young professionals who are unable to travel but still want to boost their career prospects with overseas work experience and professional coaching tailored to your specific career goals.

We offer over 30 career-focused remote internship programs in Europe, Asia and Africa. Unlike our intern abroad programs, you can complete your internship online from wherever you are located, communicating with your host organization online and through video calls. Whether you’re completing your internship from the comfort of your home, in conjunction with gap year travels, or in between other studies or employment, our online internships enable you to use your spare time to gain practical cross-cultural experience and accelerate your career.

Our online internships are 100% customizable, providing you with the freedom to start your internship at any time and choose your own working hours. All Intern Abroad HQ internships are conducted in English, or the local language of your host organization if you’d prefer to put your foreign language skills into practice.

All remote internship programs include Intern Abroad HQ’s exclusive Experiential Learning Curriculum: a guided reflection course, which combines personal development with professional competency building. Interns receive weekly reflection modules to complete during their program, which foster the acquisition of essential soft skills for employability and a resilient career. Each reflective journaling task introduces a new topic, presents learning objectives, and provides specific prompts that inspire and guide the learning process.

Upon completion of the internship and reflection course, interns receive a portfolio as documentation of their experience. This includes a certificate of internship completion, alongside a summary of the internship goals, skill development, highlights, and a compilation of the reflection work that will help you articulate your achievements during job interviews.

Gaining Academic Credit Intern Abroad HQ does not award grades for the completion of our internship programs, but we have many years of experience in supporting our interns to secure academic credit through their college or university.
