International internships and volunteering

Gain professional experience and build an international network in your field with one of our many international internship and volunteering opportunities.

In addition to enhancing your career prospects, you’ll become more independent and build confidence and cultural awareness as you adapt to a new country.

Internships are usually at least 4 weeks in duration. Talk to your academic chair and the Work Integrated Learning team about whether your internship will count as credit towards your degree. If you are eligible for credit, you may also be able to fund your internship through an OS-HELP loan.

You can also volunteer overseas to gain experience and make a difference.
