Apply to Co-op or Intern Abroad

The University of Cincinnati invented co-op and continues to be a leader in experiential learning. There are multiple ways that you can take your work experience abroad.

UC International works closely with Division of Experience-Based Learning and Career Education (ELCE) to offer these programs. ELCE focuses on work abroad.

The International Co-op Program is a structured, rigorous program that prepares you with language and cultural coursework to live and work abroad for up to eight months. Advantages of this program include:

  • Learning a second language in depth and gaining first-hand exposure to another way of life
  • Working in a professional environment outside the U.S. with the responsibilities of a co-op student
  • Gaining a competitive edge for full-time employment with global organizations with potential for promotions and international assignments

Interested students are urged to apply in their first year or early in the second year.

The International Experience Program provides students from any major the opportunity to complete an internship or co-op abroad in select locations. Students in the program get help with overseas housing, finding a job, finding financial aid, completing necessary documents, and getting student travel discounts.

Programs are available in the following locations:
