International Student Services

International Student Services


The Division of Experience-Based Learning and Career Education (ELCE) serves as a fully integrated career preparation hub within the University of Cincinnati.

ELCE's International Student Services provides supportive initiatives designed to meet the professional needs of UC International Students.

Services are designed to help students build their professional skill set through co-op and job search seminars with convenient learning modules on Blackboard and individual career coaching.


Searching for any type of job as an international student involves more than creating a competitive resume; it takes a lot of work. ELCE International Student Services provides additional resources to support students in their co-op, internship, and full-time job search.

Using these services will enable students to:

  • Create a more competitive resume
  • Improve interview skills
  • Incorporate strategies for professional networking
  • Initiate an effective job search
  • Increase confidence in professional skills

The more services and resources you have at your fingertips, the easier your job search will be.

For international students, finding a job can take time. We encourage you to start early - as much as six months to a year.


These supplemental services are open to all University of Cincinnati International Students, in addition to existing experiential learning advising.

Students with co-op advisors in the College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP), the College of Engineering and Applied Science (CEAS) and Information Technology, as well as students in the Lindner College of Business and the College of Arts & Sciences are encouraged to use these services as an additional resource in their career preparation.

  • Services are recommended for the following types of students:
  • Engineering students struggling to find a co-op position
  • Freshman IT students with a shorter co-op search window
  • Undergraduate students who need assistance finding a co-op or internship
  • Graduate students who need assistance finding internships or full-time employment
