Program description

Global Internships

Earn academic credit while gaining practical internship experience from anywhere in the world! Berkeley Global Internships offers project-based virtual academic internships in a variety of industries in both domestic and international locations.

We offer:

  • One-on-one program advising
  • Placement in a virtual internship based on your academic background, experience, and interests
  • Professional development workshops to prepare you for your virtual internship

Benefits of a virtual internship

  • Accessibility. Gaining international work experience is now possible without even leaving your home. This program option is open to all students, regardless of their ability to apply for and obtain a visa or passport.
  • Flexibility. It is often difficult for students to fit an internship into their busy summer schedules, while also making progress toward their degrees, juggling part-time jobs, or other responsibilities. This program allows students to create their own schedule and enroll in additional courses, if desired.
  • Gain valuable skills for today’s global workplace. Develop global competencies and skills such as collaboration, communication, and problem-solving that will prepare students to thrive in a diverse and interconnected world.
  • Expand your network. This program provides students with the opportunity to expand their global professional network.

  • Are currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program or have graduated within the last 12 months.
