What is an International Internship?

An international internship is an opportunity to work internationally for academic credit, and is typically unpaid. Internships are an excellent way to gain real-world work experience, develop contacts in your field and build your resume to market yourself for future career opportunities.

Internship details are as follows:

  • Internships take place during the summer term
  • Internships are between 6 and 12 weeks, and equivalent to full-time work (35 hours per week)
  • Positions are unpaid, but students receive academic credit as part of their internship (Course: IPAF 3900 is half a credit for a 6-week internship, IPAF 3901 is a full credit for a 12-week internship)

Eligibility

In order to be eligible for the program, students must:

  • have a minimum 7.0 CGPA
  • have 3rd year standing by the time they go abroad
  • be registered in an Undergraduate degree program at Carleton
