    Friend Referral Program

    We appreciate how expensive life can be and not everyone has the bank account to fund an international internship experience. We offer a referral program to help level the playing field by allowing you to earn a nice chunk of change for spending money or even to pay your full program tuition for referrals you send who successfully enroll in one of our programs.


    Financial Aid

    If you are earning credit for your internship abroad you may be able to use existing financial aid through your university. Speak with your financial aid office and Admissions Counselor for more details. If you earn transfer credit directly through the Academic Internship Program in London you may also be able to utilize your existing financial aid.



    There are grants and scholarships for internships abroad. Research thoroughly to find a scholarship that meets your needs, and before applying for a scholarship or grant make sure you meet all of the eligibility requirements. Below are some online resources for financial aid specifically for international education:

    Installment Plan

    We offer an installment payment option that allows you to divide the total program tuition into equal monthly increments. The amount and number of payment depends on time of enrollment and program start date. Please note there is a 5% interest tuition for the installment plan. Contact your Admissions Counselor for details.


    Family and Community

    An internship abroad is an investment in your career. You may be surprised by how many of your loved ones would be happy to support you. Don’t be afraid to ask family members and community organizations like churches or synagogues to help you achieve your goals.

    Crowd Funding

    Crowd-funding is a fantastic way to raise the funds needed for your internship abroad. Ask friends and family to donate toward your international experience instead of asking for gifts for your birthday or holidays.

    Student Loans

    Other Private Loans

    If you think a private loan is the best option for you, make sure to fully research and question a lender before deciding to take a private loan. International Student Loan is a good resource to compare different lenders and interest rates.
