Get out of the classroom and into the community!  Internships help students immerse in Czech culture, make life-long connections, and gain invaluable hands-on professional experience. 

NYU Prague offers two distinct internship programs: the Academic (for-credit) Internship Program and a non-credit program. Review this comparison chart for more information about the two programs. 

Academic Internships  

Students in the NYU Prague Academic Internship Program learn about Czech culture and professional life through internship placements in a wide range of industries.  This for-credit program includes two components:

  1. Guaranteed (minimum 16hr/week) internship placement
  2. Participation in the Internship Seminar and Fieldwork course

In order to enroll in this program, students must participate in a competitive application process.  Successful applicants are typically adaptable, flexible, goal-oriented, and open-minded.   

While there is no cost to participate in the Academic Internship Program, students that participate are subject to a financial penalty should they withdraw from the program.

If you are interested in participating in this program, please join us for an information session on Tuesday, February 4, at 2:00pm at 383 Lafayette St. Room C-06  All questions may be directed to

To apply to the NYU Prague Academic Internship Program, you must first submit a study away application. Visit the NYU Study Abroad "Apply" page for more information. You will be prompted to upload a personal statement, resume, and other documents as part of your online internship application.

Internship Placements

NYU has partnered with EUSA, a non-profit organization, to identify custom placements for students in the academic internship program.  Unlike a traditional internship search, where students as job seekers are applying directly to organizations and weighing opportunities, EUSA conducts this entire process on participants' behalf.  EUSA weighs opportunities based on students' academic and professional goals, resulting in one placement. 

Please watch this short video to better understand the placement process:

Internship opportunities vary semester by semester; therefore, no specific placement list is available.  Placement opportunities reflect trends in the context of the Czech job market.  Some sample placement industries include: Business, Education, Film, Journalism, Law, Music, Politics, Theater, and more.  If you do not see your industry of interest or have questions, email
