International Internships Program

The Yale-coordinated International Internships Program allows students to gain international career experience and broaden their perspectives by working and living abroad for 8-10 weeks during the summer. Each location offers internships in a variety of career fields including the arts, politics, global health, technology, community advocacy, think tanks, finance, journalism, and law. There are both paid and unpaid internships, with some offering other perks such as free lunches or covering commuting costs. Opportunities are offered by Yale alumni, Yale Greenberg World Fellows, and friends of Yale. 

All international travelers must hold a valid passport.  A visa or work authorization may be required and students are strongly encouraged to conduct their own research to verify their process. The Office of Career Strategy has compiled numerous visa/work authorization resources.  Additionally, students can process visas/work authorizations through CIBT Visas, who serve Yale at a discounted rate (Yale’s ID number: 40634).  Students traveling to England and Hong Kong should contact the Office of Career Strategy to discuss applying for work authorization.
