International Internship Program

Intern Abroad Summer 2019: Clemson Univerity
8-Week International Internship Program via API Abroad

May 29 - July 27, 2019: Chile • Ireland • England • Spain • Australia

You have the unique opportunity to spend summer 2019 gaining valuable work and cultural experience by interning abroad for 8-weeks in one of five exciting destinations through a Clemson University special partnership with Academic Programs International (API).

You will spend time living and interning abroad in a tailor-made placement to match your learning and career objectives. Through careful program design, this internship program encompasses a number of career development and cultural resources to maximize your time abroad. The program is comprehensive and includes all of the key services and support to enhance your intern abroad experience.

The Program Includes:

  • Internship Placement by Major or Career Interest
  • Housing
  • Access to Resident Directors 24/7
  • Health Insurance
  • Workplace and Cultural Orientation
  • Online Resources
  • Local Cultural Events


Students will enroll at Clemson University for academic credit. There will be three modules that will be taught in sequential order during the summer months. The first module in the series (2 weeks) concentrates on international internship pre-departure activities and focuses on helping students explore new paradigms related to their cultural awareness and career development. The second module in the series (8 weeks) occurs abroad and primarily emphasizes the work experience of the internship. Hours will be logged, an essay written, and final evaluations by mentors and students will be completed during this course module. The third module in the series (2 weeks) occurs during the remaining weeks of the summer once students have returned from their international internship experiences. Assignments will focus on how students are readjusting to US culture, reflections on how their cultural discoveries affect their educational activities and career aspirations, and strategies for leveraging the experience during the job search process. Sample job application materials and mock interview exercises – introduced and critiqued by faculty – will be used to support student learning in this last session.
