Study Abroad + Internships | API Study Abroad

Study Abroad Plus Internships

In addition to our full-time internship programs, API also offers students the option to participate in an internship while on a semester, academic year, or summer study abroad program. In most cases students can earn academic credit, though some opportunities are offered without credit. Most internship opportunities are included in the cost of the program, though a few are offered for an additional fee.
