Study + Internship Abroad programs are ideal when you want to make steady progress toward your degree requirements while exploring a career field. By selecting this option, you'll get a traditional study abroad experience while developing key skills you'll need in the marketplace. If you're looking to do it all, then this may be the best overseas internship option for you.

Internship Only programs are ideal when you want to shift the focus from being a student to being a young professional. While living like a local, you'll develop career skills and become a more independent, resilient, and communicative professional. These programs are perfect when you want to go abroad, gain career experience at a price you can afford, and take on the challenge of making an impact in 8 weeks.

Internship Abroad Seminar:

THE MULTICULTURAL WORKPLACE

All CEA internships include an academic seminar called "the multicultural workplace" that meets around 3-4 hours per week (once or twice per week). This class allows you to share your experiences with other interns, reflect upon the work you've been doing, and learn from weekly highs and lows with a skilled faculty member.

How We Place You

At CEA, we take time with you to set expectations and explore the skills you need to succeed. We then search for the right placement, one that will support your needs and requirements for professional success. We hone in on skill development and refinement, so that you will have the full set of skills employers are seeking after graduation.
We work with you to identify:
  • The field in which you would like to work and a realistic perspective on the career.
  • The fundamental skills required for entry into the profession.
  • The skills needed to achieve long-term success.
  • Current abilities and those needing development.
Our locally-based staff will find a placement that will challenge you to build your skillset and make a meaningful impact. While we may partner with multinational companies, our preference is for organizations and companies that give you the opportunities, qualifications, and diversity of experience you need to succeed.

WHAT OUR STUDENTS SAY

Looks Great on My Résumé
I learned so much of the language and had some of the best experiences of my life. It opened doors for me to evaluate who I am and what I want. It looks great on a résumé.

If you could go anywhere, where would you choose?

Can't decide? Don't worry. We still love you. Check as many as you like. Still not sure? That's OK. We would totally have a hard time too. Just check 'I don't know yet'.
