International Experience

Imagine living and working for three months in another country. Through the International Experience Program, you can.

Due to immigration laws and visa regulations, internships are typically unpaid, but the experience offers great cultural and educational advantages.

Students in any major can participate; however, certain cities are better for certain fields.

Students in a co-op program may complete an international internship in place of one co-op rotation.

International experiences can take place in fall, spring or summer semester.

UC works with the Academic Internship Council (AIC) to manage and maintain the quality of these programs. AIC helps students with overseas housing, finding a job, finding financial aid, completing necessary documents, and student travel discounts.

Additional funding is available for Singapore and Hong Kong from the Freeman Foundation.
