    Our workshops, training, and career coaching session will equip you with the tools you need to leverage your international internship experience in your future interviews.

Academic credit

It may be possible to attain academic credit through your internship. If your school grants credit for internships, then ask for the list of requirements. They may have rules about the number of hours you must complete, the type of internship position, or about your internship host company. If your educator will not grant credit directly, ask if you can transfer credit from another university. The Intern Group provides a transcript option through our partnership with Florida A&M University and you may be eligible to earn transfer credit.

During your initial interview with The Intern Group, be sure to tell us that you will be doing the internship for credit.

Going through The Intern Group made everything really simple and easy. Just the fundemental things you have to do when you go to a different country - The Intern Group did absolutely everything for me and kept me informed throughout every single step.
