Intern Abroad with API

The Value of Interning Abroad

There are a number of reasons why you would want to intern abroad with API and let us help you facilitate your international work experience. Through careful program design, our internship programs encompass a number of career development and cultural resources to maximize your learning and growth.

Why limit yourself to interning locally when you can choose to start building your career abroad through this exhilarating opportunity of a lifetime?

Cultural Immersion

Domestic internships limit the chance to expand your global awareness and understanding. During your API program you will be immersed into the local cultural by living and working alongside locals. We will help you settle into your new home through our Workplace and Culture Orientation Program (only available through our 8-Week Fixed Date Internship Program). You will have the opportunity to learn about the history, people, and workplace differences before you start your internship placement. This will help prepare you the enriching international professional experience ahead!

Also included in the program are local API led activities to explore and learn about the local culture.

Career Exploration and Cultivation

Whether you want to climb the corporate ladder, create your own start-up, work in public service, or explore any of the other career paths available, you will benefit by having a variety experiences to help discover and shape your interests and passions. Interning abroad through API is the perfect way to accelerate your career path through career exploration and cultivation.

By interning abroad you are beginning on the Path to Personal and Professional Excellence. In addition to test-driving a potential career avenue through a customized internship placement overseas, our program has been developed to give you the best career development training and resources as you prepare for a meaningful and successful career.

Whether it is through our pre-departure orientation materials and resources, our exclusive Career Navigation Briefcase, or onsite during our Workplace and Culture Orientation, you will have access to a wealth of information to help you take charge of planning your professional future.


One of the best outcomes from spending time interning abroad is the opportunity for personal development and awareness. Understanding your unique passions, interests, character, and natural abilities can help save valuable time and money as you begin your professional career. By stepping outside your comfort zone and into new surroundings, you will have the chance for self-reflection and the opportunity to unlock abilities that you never realized you had.
