Internship Placements & Course

three pathways to gain internship experience

Your online placement will be available in the semester (2 options) or the summer, with each week involving time spent working synchronously with the “home office” and time completing self-directed project work independently. We have three different ways for you to engage with your placement so that your internship meets your personal, academic, and career goal needs. Other virtual internship opportunities are cross-listed below.

  • As part of your placement, you will be enrolled in an Arcadia Abroad internship course (see below). This will provide context for your international work experience and help you process what you learn professionally and personally through your placement.
  • You can choose between one of three options for your virtual internship placement duration:
    • Semester (Full): 12 weeks, ~20 hours per week (10 synchronous, 10 independent) 
    • Semester (Block A or B): ~7 weeks, 3 days per week, see Program Dates page for more info
    • Summer: 6 week session, 3 days per week
  • Virtual Global Internship Placement Guide
  • Placements are offered first come, first served, therefore we may fill all available placements prior to the final deadline, so submit your application and confirm your participation early.
