Welcome to GlobalWorks


GlobalWorks International Internship Program, administered by the UO’s Global Studies Institute (GSI), connects academic study with real-world experiences by providing full-time international internship opportunities to UO students in a wide variety of career sectors.

We work with local professional internship providers in locations around the world to provide individualized placements for UO students. Students earn UO credits as well as life-changing work experience in a different culture.

Coronavirus and GlobalWorks

While GlobalWorks continues to prepare for your upcoming Summer 2020 international internship program, we want to let you know that GlobalWorks and UO leadership continue to monitor all study abroad locations based on information from CDC, State Department, and international resources. This is an evolving situation, and we will contact you with any program specific updates. In the meantime, we encourage you to review the UO Coronavirus website and GEO Coronavirus website for updates and information.
