When deciding whether or not to intern while studying away, it is important to keep the following factors in mind:
Internship placements that are accompanied by course work are considered for-credit opportunities and are taken for four credits. Internship placements are often guaranteed for those participating in academic internship programs.
Noncredit internship placements have more flexible time commitments. Students often source their own noncredit placements; however, some sites have more formal noncredit internship programs. Certain types of paid and unpaid work may be prohibited based on visa requirements.
Visa regulations and costs vary by country. Some countries require a special visa for students to intern, work, or volunteer abroad. If you are planning to intern abroad, contact the NYU Office of Global Services to begin the visa application process at email@example.com.
The NYU Global Internship program is competitive, and students must submit an application to participate in all NYU global internship programs. Applications for internships require a résumé review by a career coach at the Wasserman Center. Be mindful of program deadlines.

The academic internship programs at most sites require students to intern up to 20 hours per week and participate in a weekly seminar. Placement opportunities at each site vary.
The academic internship programs in Berlin, Buenos Aires, Madrid, and Paris require knowledge of the local language. The more advanced your language skills are, the more opportunities will be available to you. Consider taking language classes before you study away.
