Internships in Asia
Interning abroad in Asia is a wonderful way to immerse yourself in a new country and culture, while gaining valuable international work and resume building experience. Whether you are interested in an internship in business, medicine and healthcare, journalism, law and human rights, or veterinary medicine, a variety of internships in a wide rage of settings and fields are available in Cambodia, China, Mongolia, Nepal, Sri Lanka, and Thailand.
Through our intern abroad program in Asia, your time and efforts will be greatly appreciated and your role will be important. From working in local hospitals in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, to interning at print or radio journalism placements in Colombo, Sri Lanka, interns will gain unique hands-on experience, as positions often offer greater responsibility and opportunities than many internships in North America. Depending on the program, interns work anywhere from 30 – 40 hours a week. While knowledge of the native language in the country where you are interning is usually not necessary, most interns will be expected to be proficient in both verbal and written English.
Through your international internship in Asia, you will not only provide beneficial aid and value to your organisation, but you will also help nurture a developing economy. You will learn from your placements and the people you meet while gaining further insight in a chosen field, a cross-cultural exchange in which benefits are reaped both on a personal and global level.
