Work, Intern, Volunteer, or Teach Abroad

These opportunities can be a wonderful way to improve one’s practical skills, enhance one’s resume, learn about another culture, meet people from many countries and backgrounds, and see another part of the world.

As part of the research process, students are encouraged to identify goals and priorities for working, interning, volunteering and teaching abroad. Students should gather information on many different programs and opportunities as possible to determine the right fit. Before paying a placement fee, signing a contract, or buying a plane ticket, students should contact organizations and institutions directly with questions about fees, compensation, work expectations, etc.
