Many study abroad programs now offer internships. While students might be able to obtain an internship in International Opportunities Programs, typically it is difficult to get academic credit for more than 4.0 units or for a full summer program, which may make the UC Education Abroad Program and UC Summer Abroad more attractive for students who depend on financial.
There are a number of UCEAP options with known internship possibilities:
- Programs with required internships: these are programs for which internships are integrated into the program.
- Programs with optional, facilitated internships: these are programs with robust internship options for which the program facilitates internship placement options.
- Programs with possible internships, not necessarily facilitated: these are programs in which internships are available but students typically seek them out independently.
