INTERNSHIP

Almost all schools offer an internship program – voluntary work experience in a company of your choice.

Why an internship?

An internship will enable you to put the theory you have learnt on the course into practice and to simultaneously gain work experience in a foreign environment.

What do companies do?

Choose between sales and marketing, international relations, travel and tourism, education or law.

Placements

The EF-coordinator from your school will find you a company in the area of your interest.

Before you begin your eight-week internship program, you will go through a preparatory period which will prepare you for the program: writing resumes, interviewing for a job, vocabulary specific to the work area you have chosen.

Presentation of your experience

After you finish your internship, you'll make a formal presentation to your class on one aspect of your experience. This will combine research about the field in which you have worked with your own personal impressions.
