International Internships

COVID-19 Update: Due to current travel restrictions, the UCC is unable to host an international internship program for Summer 2021.

An international internship offers the best combination of gaining real-world skills while getting immersed in a new culture. International internships provide UT Dallas students with global experiences in professional environments, tackling the world’s biggest and most challenging issues.

A study done by NACE found that 97% of graduates with international experience found a job within 12 months of graduating, compared with only 49% of the general graduate population.

Why participate in an international internship?

  • Increase Independence
  • Network Globally
  • Explore Different Cultures
  • Build Language and Cross-Cultural Communication Skills
  • Gain a Competitive Edge on the Job Market
