Program Structure

CEA’s virtual internship program includes an online academic seminar and a virtual internship placement. Your internship work schedule may vary depending on industry standards for your career field, time difference and will be determined prior to your start date.

The virtual internship includes an online seminar that you’ll complete independently and through virtual check-ins for a total of 22 contact hours and 120 hours at your virtual internship placement over 6 weeks. Together, your online seminar and virtual internship placement are worth 3 credits.

Prior to submitting your application, you will select the internship option that works best for you and select a program session. We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible. Internship positions are selective; students who demonstrate high levels of discipline, initiative, verbal and oral communication skills, motivation, and flexibility throughout the process are most successful in securing placements. We strongly recommended that you apply as soon as possible.

The placement process involves three video interviews: a screening interview with your Internship Coach, a job placement interview with your on-site internship coordinator, and a final interview with your host site supervisor. The host site retains the final decision regarding placements, so it’s important that your interviews reflect your maturity, adaptability, curiosity, and commitment to both your career interests and the host organization.

Upon successfully completing your on-site placement coordinator interview, CEA guarantees you a placement based on the personal, professional, and cross-cultural goals reflected in your interview. All placements will be secured two weeks prior to the program start. Upon placement, you'll automatically be enrolled in your online internship seminar course.

If you have confirmed an internship placement through independent contacts, we can also support you in securing important logistics such as credit transfer. Contact an Enrollment Advisor for more details.




Course offerings are contingent upon enrollment. We'll post an updated list once offerings are finalized.
