We are now accepting applications for Fall 2020 Virtual Programs. More info will be available for Winter 2021 and Spring 2021 internships.

This table shows the timeline for summer internships. For other terms, the process is the same, but the timeline is different. For more info on Fall Virtual Internship, please go to this link.

Process and Important Dates:

The GlobalWorks International Internship Program application and placement is a 3-step process.

Step 1: UO Program Application

Please apply as soon as you are ready. We will review applications as they come in. The benefit of submitting early is that the internship placement process gets started early. Please make sure all of your application materials are submitted by the deadline. Your application will not be reviewed unless we have a complete application. Late applications may be accepted depending on program availability. Please contact us if you are not able to submit the application by the deadline. Please make sure you work with the Career Center to have your cover letter and resume reviewed before you submit. This will help expedite the placement process. The application deadlines for Academic Year programs are flexible as there is less competition for academic year compared to summer. Please email for more info.

Step 2: Internship Placement

We work with internship providers in each country to place students. The placement is very individualized. Students usually have one placement interview at a time. It is not common to interview with multiple companies/organizations at the same time. It is very important to check and respond to emails from the UO committee, the internship provider, and your potential host company promptly during this process.

Step 3: Departure Preparation (onsite programs only)

If you do not have a passport, please apply for one as soon as you confirm your participation in the GlobalWorks Internship Program. As you work with the internship provider on the placement, we will work with you on the paperwork required by the UO for international internship programs. In our pre-departure orientations in Spring term, we will cover all the logistics such as safety info, travel insurance, emergency contact info and etc.
