Internships Abroad

Internships Abroad are offered by several Cal Poly approved partner organizations, either as stand-alone internship experiences or as part of a regular study abroad program. Internships provide opportunities for gaining practical skills, earning academic credit, connecting with a team for pre-professional experience, and testing your aptitude in a potential career field. Engaging in an internship abroad has the added benefits of being able to grow your cross-cultural understanding, network on a global scale, improve your communication skills, and experience a new environment. Give yourself an edge in the job market, gain confidence and problem-solving ability, and engage in meaningful self-discovery through an internship abroad.
