In addition, we encourage our participants to inquire if they can do our program for credit, whether directly from their home institution or from Florida A&M University, our school of record. We work together with our partner universities to send more students on international education programs, enabling them to further realize their potential.

Pre-program:

  • DISC workplace assessment
  • Training materials on a variety of professional development topics

On-program:

  • A leading internship in one of the career fields of their choice

Post-program:

  • One-on-one career coaching session
  • An extensive international network

 

For more information about how we prepare your students to become tomorrow’s leaders in the workplace, refer to our Learning Experience page.

Health & safety

Our interns’ health and wellbeing are our top priorities. As an organization that promotes international experiences, we understand that while it is exciting for interns to move to a new city, it is also essential for them to be aware of the various cultural differences they may face. We prepare our interns as much as possible for these cultural differences by providing them with a pre-arrival webinar, a welcome orientation and pack at the start of their program and 24/7 support from our local staff.

First response and crisis management

Our in country staff in each destination are comprehensively trained to ensure the safety of your students during their time on the program. Our crisis management procedure – which we call our First Response – has been custom-designed by Control Risks, and our staff are regularly trained and retrained on it. With this 24/7 support in country, we can assure you that the health and well-being of each and every student is of utmost importance and priority to us.

Safety abroad

We recognize the importance of students making informed decisions about overseas travel. We regularly monitor safety and security in each program location and advise students and their universities of any risks that potentially would affect them. The information we act upon is based on the recommendations from the U.S. Department of State’s travel warnings, UK Government, local law enforcement in our overseas destinations, NAFSA and the World Health Organization. In addition, we have implemented a worldwide policy for the prevention of sexual exploitation, abuse and harassment (PSEAH), based on the high standards which the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) developed in order to protect students traveling abroad.

Please find our response to COVID-19 and safety tips in our FAQs.

Academic credit

If you allow students to earn academic credit from internships, we can work with them to meet these requirements. Learn how students can receive academic credit through our international internship programs here.

Academic Advisory Board

The Intern Group's Academic Advisory Board (AAB) is composed of senior higher education professionals in the international education field. These members advise The Intern Group on policies and programming changes required from an institutional perspective. They also offer guidance regarding changes in the academic/higher education field.
