In a world that is changing by the day, set within a global crisis that is changing by the minute, the need for businesses to rely on technology and remote communication is critical. While the rest of the world is required to work from home where possible, this is your chance to gain real-life experience working as part of an essential remote team for a company that has had to do it out of necessity. Hone your technology skills and problem-solving while learning from people working in your field of interest.
In a competitive job market, a virtual internship placement abroad gives your résumé an international dimension that’s rare among graduates. Having done so during such a crucial learning curve in business will take it that bit further.
A virtual internship gives you the real-world experience you need, in the industry you love, in your own home.
Learn International has partnered with Next Step Connections (another study abroad provider) so we can offer offer virtual internships across several different countries in Asia, as well as Europe.
A list of majors and industries is below. Not all majors can be accommodated in every location. If you don’t see yours on the list, don’t worry. Contact us with what you’re looking for and we’ll see what we can do!
As many employers around the world have temporarily shifted to working remotely, they have identified specific challenges and needs where interns can help. Our host companies have all identified specific projects for interns that would make a positive difference. No making coffee and photocopying here – you’ll be working hard to help further the company’s goals!
We pair students with a small or medium company that will support and challenge them in equal measure, with remote guidance and supervision. The placement will allow you to work remotely with inspiring professionals, applying your academic knowledge to real-life business projects, which will help further your career goals.
Our internships will give students the chance to hone skills, develop new ones and build confidence through learning by doing. We can provide certified work hours, placement assessments and feedback to satisfy your university’s requirements for academic credit.
Virtual internships also include remote mentoring, direct supervisors, purposeful projects, defined roles and responsibilities and industry expert guest speakers, as well as CV, cover letter and interview guidance and remote support throughout the programme.
Students have the opportunity to undertake two distinct, remote, project-based placements with companies from both Europe and Asia. This gives students the chance to maximise their intercultural and global professional exposure this summer.
This unique opportunity allows them to contribute to and learn from colleagues and mentors in local SME offices in both Europe and Asia within one programme.
The chance to experience and learn from the contrasting work cultures in America, Europe and Asia in one programme is a very attractive option for students that are suddenly faced with a myriad of online placement options.
As all of the internships are through English, this is a unique opportunity for you to undertake an internship within multilingual enterprises without a language barrier.
