Study Experience is able to help you plan a professional internship in Canada, England, Australia and New-Zealand. Your placement may last anything from a few weeks to a year and are possible for students at all levels and areas of study.
Why do an internship abroad?
An internship abroad is a unique opportunity to brush up on your English skills whilst still gaining valuable work experience. It is becoming harder and harder to differentiate yourself on the job market, but experience in another country is something that most employers will value very highly. You will learn how to be adaptable, by experiencing a new environment and work ethic and you will also be able to get a head start in building your own professional network. More than anything, gaining work experience abroad is simply an efficient and affordable way to improve you employability back home !

A Study Experience will help you prepare a personal statement and you should also send us any reference letters you may have from previous employers or teachers.
All these documents must be submitted in English.
Once it has been established that your internship is possible, Study Experience will ask you for a placement fee (contact us for a free quote). Your placement is 100% guaranteed once the fee has been paid.
Before your departure
During a first interview, a counsellor will establish whether or not your internship project is viable.
Once the counsellor confirms that your internship is possible, a placement fee will be charged and your internship is guaranteed.
You will receive a detailed proposition from an employer, that corresponds to your criteria.
A second interview is then orgnaised with the potential employer.
Once the internship is confirmed, we will help you prepare your departure (visa, flights, accommodation...).
Is my internship guaranteed?
Your internship abroad is guaranteed : we commit to finding you a placement but also guarantee the quality of this placement.
