Globe with pins on it

Have you been accepted into an international internship program and want to know your next steps?

An international internship is an exceptional way to enhance both your academic and personal skills and can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your academic program. It is important for you to be aware of all the placement opportunities, course benefits and potential risk before making a commitment to an internship abroad. Your personal health, safety and learning experience are the University's primary concerns.

Please Note:
Before committing to ANY international internship experience, students should meet at least one full semester prior to departure with these offices for additional requirements and documentation:

Number one Contact Lori Patterson in the Office of Global Engagement to submit documentation for University approval for your international internship travel.
Number two  Make sure that you check in with your academic Adviser and faculty department internship coordinator to see how this experience might fit into your academic program.  
Number three  Complete the documentation for the International Internship Learning Contract template under “Experiences” on CCU Handshake. For a general overview of the process, see www.coastal.edu/internships and click on “For Students”. 
Number four  Work with your faculty department internship coordinator/instructor to complete any additional paperwork for enrollment in the appropriate credit courses.
Number five  Contact Financial Aid office for loan, payment, and scholarship options.
