This type of experiential learning creates an appreciation for the challenge of a professional career, assists the student in the transition between four years of higher education and the work environment, helps to build self-confidence and interpersonal competence, and prepares the student better for a senior capstone experience in the student's major discipline. In addition, the international internship allows the student to live and work as a professional in another culture, and often immersed in another language.
In combination with a study abroad experience
Some study abroad programs also offer internships in replacement for one of the courses taken during the semester.
