Study Abroad Internships

The most affordable and culturally immersive way to earn college credit abroad

Looking for global study abroad opportunities but can’t afford a traditional program? With Intern Abroad HQ you can study abroad and gain career experience at the same time! All our internship programs offer the opportunity to earn academic credit, providing you with a much more affordable option than getting college credit on campus or through a long-term semester abroad commitment.

Just look at the cost savings:

A traditional study abroad semester (15-16 weeks) typically costs between $15,000 and $22,000 USD and typically offers 15 US academic credits (source: GoOverseas).

With Intern Abroad HQ, you can do a 16 week internship program and earn 16 US credits for as little as $5,000 USD - with accommodation included!

What is study abroad volunteering with IVHQ.

What is a study abroad internship?

Traditional study abroad involves earning academic credit in another country by completing coursework at a host institution, such as an overseas university. This is often chosen by students as a way to gain course credit while experiencing living and studying in another country.

The downside is that this can be an expensive way to earn credits and explore another country. Study abroad programs typically cost tens of thousands of dollars and require 4-5 months away.

With Intern Abroad HQ, you can earn academic credits in as little as 2 weeks on an internship program. This costs a fraction of the price of your typical study abroad program and it’s an option for non-university students too!

Instead of sitting in lectures without interacting with the local culture, interning abroad allows you to contribute to impactful projects and have a deeper, richer immersion into your host community. This is a sure-way to make your resume stand out from the crowd, gain practical experience, and truly immerse yourself in the local culture!

In conjunction with your immersive internship experience, you can enroll in our bespoke online coursework to fulfill academic credit requirements.
