An Internship Abroad: A Life Changing Experience

Global Experiences firmly believes that an international internship experience can be one of the most enriching and rewarding opportunities, both personally and professionally. We also understand that all parents and guardians want to ensure the best for their children and help support and protect them as they navigate their path to adulthood. At Global Experiences we take a very personal approach and see every participant as a unique individual.


Our program is designed to take a strengths-based approach that helps each participant find their unique strengths and, combined with their interests and academic studies, navigate a professional experience abroad that will help them land a career they love. We are committed to every participant meeting their potential, which we achieve through our intentional and award-winning Career Readiness Program.  We are more than an internship placement company, we are a professional coach and accelerator to help every participant make informed decisions about their career path. We provide a personal one-on-one approach that no college or university can provide. Let us help you support your loved ones in their pursuit of an academic internship abroad.

Benefits of Interning Abroad

The face of education abroad is changing and growing to help students adapt to the demands of a competitive economy. According to a study from the Institute of International Education, U.S. student participation in study abroad has more than tripled over the past decade. Students and graduates have more opportunities to study, live, and intern abroad today than ever before.

We have over 8,000 alumni of our program who are now using their experience abroad to make more informed choices about their career. In a recent survey we found that 95% of our alumni report feeling more confident and prepared for their professional life due to their participation in our program.

Global Experiences was founded on the idea that an international experience is one of the most rewarding investments in one’s life. Why?

Participants will:

  • Gain full-time work experience in a new environment
  • Build professional and interpersonal skills
  • Increase marketability when starting their career
  • Create lifelong connections around the world
  • Boost self-esteem, confidence, and independence
  • Expand their own perspective and cultural awareness

Virtual Internships

What About Virtual Internships?

With the changes around the world in Spring 2020, Global Experiences made an important decision to launch a virtual opportunity for interns that could not board a plane and travel abroad as they originally intended. Careful thought and consideration went into this choice, and here are some of the highlights:

  • Guaranteed internship with an international employer
  • All of GE's standard professional development
  • Virtual welcome and exit orientations
  • Internship monitoring & virtual check-ins
  • Experience in a virtual setting, practicing time management and task prioritization
