International Internships

Short and long-term opportunties to intern abroad

International Internships

Begin the international internship application process at least six weeks prior to departure.  Starting earlier than this will also increase your chances of ensuring all requirements are completed prior to departure for your internship. More information on International Internships can be found here.

All UVU study abroad and international internship students must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Students may be required to test negative for COVID-19 at their own expense by host countries as a condition for entry.

  • Complete the Global Internship Travel Registration, including paying the $25 registration fee.
  • Follow the checklist items found on the International Interships webpage.
  • International Health and Evacuation Insurance: You will receive an email from Customer Service from UVU's insurance provider, GeoBlue, that instructs you to register using a Certificate Number provided in the email so that you can print out an insurance ID card.  For some international internships and/or international travel programs, you will be required to pay for this insurance. You will receive an email with instructions for paying for the insurance from internationaltravel@uvu.eduif you are responsible to do so.

The Office of Education Abroad registers UVU student international travel via this process, but does not coordinate travel logistics, visa support, accommodations and room/board, or internship work experiences abroad.

 Internship credit is granted by UVU colleges and departments, but travel arrangements are the responsibility of the student in consultation with their internship provider or company.  
 

Note: Students planning travel to regions under US Department of State Travel Warning or CDC Warning Level 3, must submit an Exemption Request for Travel and an High Risk Travel Waiver/Release form to the Office for Global Engagement. Both forms must also be sent to veronica.caballero@uvu.edu.
