The best place to start looking for an internship is on Handshake. This is a brand new system which is used to help students find local, out-of-state and international internship openings (jobs too). Our staff networks with numerous employers to create unique internship opportunities that are specifically for UVU students and posted on this site. The opportunities change daily and cover nearly every major.

Internships Abroad

An international internship has many advantages such as experiencing another culture, broadening your perspective, creating new opportunities for future jobs and earning academic credit. Recently UVU students have interned in Ireland, Italy, Russia, England and China. Search for structured internship programs or individual internship postings on our International Internships page.

This is what students are saying about their international internships:

"Completing an internship in England was the best experience I had in my entire life, not just my college years. Every time I interview, the internship abroad is what stands out the most to all employers."

                       -Cori Fox, Communications major

"Interning in China was an incredible adventure, educational experience, and life experience; as well as being a spring board to getting into graduate school."

                       - Dana Alan Thompson, Business Management major
