IE3 Global Internships

Program Overview

IE3 Global provides internships at over 100 different organizations in 50 countries, where students can earn credit in majors ranging from finance to social work, fashion to nursing.

Internships through IE3 Global offer you the opportunity to gain professional work experience while earning UO academic credit. Internships typically range in length from ten weeks to six months and are available in a variety of private-sector companies, nonprofit organizations, and educational institutions around the world. Internships are open to juniors, seniors, graduate students, and post-baccalaureate students. All IE3 participants are required to be enrolled students and must earn academic credit for their internship. Typically, undergraduate students earn between 6-12 credits while graduate students earn between 5-9 credits.

Internships listed on the IE3 Global Internships (IE3) website include both standard internship placements and individualized placements. In standard IE3 internship placements, you apply to a particular internship site in a country. For individualized placements, you apply to an in-country professional placement agency that works to find an internship site that fits your goals and interests. Individualized internships are available in certain countries and cities, and they often have more on-site support than standard internship placements due to the presence of an in-country placement agency.

Internships are available in Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, China, Cook Islands, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, Denmark, Ecuador, England, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Gabon, Germany, Ghana, Guatemala, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Kyrgyz Republic, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Mongolia, Namibia, Nepal, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Romania, Russia, Scotland, Senegal, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Swaziland, Taiwan, Tanzania, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Uganda, Ukraine, and Vietnam.
