International Students: Please contact International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS) (oiss@udel.edu) before applying in order to discuss your eligibility to participate in the Virtual International Internship Program.

Program Description
A virtual internship provides you with a unique opportunity to gain global professional experience, boost your career profile, build an international professional network and expand your skill set while staying local. Placements are available across many overseas locations and a variety of career fields. CEA's strong academic focus and personalized placements are dedicated to meaningful experiences that make a real impact, allowing you to give your career a boost while gaining the global experience you’ve been seeking at an affordable price. Students will work on a project based in one of the following locations: Amsterdam, Netherlands; Sydney, Australia; Barcelona, Spain; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Florence, Italy; Paris, France; Prague, Czech Republic; Rome, Italy; San Jose, Costa Rica; or Seville, Spain.

Placements are available in a range of fields and industries, including:
Accounting, Advertising, Agriculture, Anthropology, Architecture, Arts, Broadcasting, Business Management, Communication, Computer Science, Culinary Arts, Culture, Data Management, Design, Economics, Education, Engineering, Environmental Studies, Exercise, Finance, Food Science, Health, Hospitality, Information Technology (IT), International Relations, Journalism, Law, Life Sciences & Resource Management, Marketing, Media Technology, Museum Studies, NGO & Development, Non Profit Administration, Political Science, Psychology, Public Relations, Publishing, Sales, Social Sciences, Social Services, Sports Science, Sustainability, Teaching, Theatre, Urban Planning, Veterinary Medicine, Visual & Digital Arts, Visual Arts & Design

The program fee includes a personalized internship placement and a flipped classroom-style online academic course. Your internship work schedule may vary depending on industry standards for your career field and will be determined with your supervisor when you start.

The program fee does not include UD tuition; see costs below. In addition, participants are responsible for maintaining reliable internet connections and for being available for periodic meetings with their supervisors. Given time zone differences, these meetings may be outside of regular business hours.

Acceptance and scholarship decisions announced May 17; the full program fee is due in at the end of May. Students will be billed their regular tuition (resident or non-resident) in July based on their full fall semester enrollment, including the 3-credit internship course.
ACCESSIBILITY: Participants with disabilities should know that accessibility and accommodation in some program locations may differ from the United States. UD students with disabilities are welcome and encouraged to study abroad. Review these questions with the Office of Disability Support Services to determine whether this program can meet your accommodation needs.
Program Courses
If you do not see your field of interest offered in the courses below, please email Sarah Spiegel and Kim Sorlin to see if it might be pursued as an option.

The International Internship: The Multicultural Workplace, will provide you the opportunity to develop vital business skills employers are actively seeking in job candidates. This course is comprised of two parts:
-You'll be placed in an internship within a sector related to your professional ambitions as outlined in your placement contract
-You will enroll in an academic seminar conducted online where you will analyze and evaluate the workplace culture and the daily working environment you experience.

The course is divided into eight career readiness competency modules as set out by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) which guide the course's learning objectives.

During the academic seminar, you will be invited to reflect weekly on your internship experience within the context of your host culture by comparing and contrasting your experiences with your global internship placement with that of your home culture. By creating an intentional time to analyze your experiences in your internship, the role you have played in the evolution of your experience in your internship placement and the experiences of your peers in their internship placements, you will develop a greater awareness of your strengths relative to the career readiness competencies, the subtleties and complexities of integrating into a cross-cultural work environment, and how to build and maintain a career search portfolio.
