International Internships & Co-ops

An international work experience gives students the opportunity to gain valuable employment skills with a global perspective. Students can secure international internships through UConn as well as through independent, private agencies or companies. Use this reference guide for questions to ask and points to consider when making the decision to work away from your home country.

Below find some of the resources you may elect to utilize in your search for an international experience. Please know that these resources are not all-encompassing and that the Center for Career Development has not vetted every experience to assure its quality. In addition, if you pursue an experience for academic credit, the University of Connecticut requires that Education Abroad protocol be followed, including registering with UConn Global Affairs (in accordance with the UConn Student International Travel Policy) and ensuring that health insurance is maintained for the duration of the trip and covers international occurrences.
