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.

Volunteering starts from one week, internships are usually at least four weeks in duration. Talk to your academic chair, the MSP201 Academic Lead and the Work-Integrated Learning team about whether volunteering or interning can count as credit towards your degree.

If you are eligible for credit, you may be able to fund your overseas program through an OS-HELP loan.
