What is an international internship?

The definition of “internship” can vary depending on the country you are referring to. However, an international internship or work placement traditionally refers to a short term (1 month – 1 year) work experience with an organization abroad that allows participants to apply theoretical classroom knowledge in a real-world setting and gain a better understanding of a given field in a global context.
