What is an internship?

An internship is an opportunity to gain work experience abroad in a specific field. An internship can add skills to your CV and set you on the right road to a successful future career. Internships are voluntary and usually unpaid positions. They are designed to give you first-hand experience in your chosen industry.

An internship is the best way to learn new skills, improve your knowledge and get practical, hands-on experience in your preferred field of work. It's also an incredible way to see the world!
