Top countries for doing an internship abroad


What's the main factor for you when choosing an internship? Is it the company's or educational institution's reputation? Or maybe it's a country which you've always wanted to visit! Let's discuss the top 5 countries for doing an international internship. This list is based on positive feedback from interns and a range of internship options. Although this information doesn't change very much from year to year, please keep in mind that this list is relevant as of 2021.

This is the country with the strongest economy in Asia, and it will be especially interesting to students specialising in business, finance, marketing, and hospitality. Moreover, being the world's largest manufacturer and having high levels of air pollution, this country invests a lot in green projects and is rapidly developing eco-efficient technologies. So, environmental science majors, why not give it a try?

Another option, which is quite popular these days, is teaching English in this country. However, you need some work experience and a bachelor's degree for that.

This country has some interesting internship programs in the fields of media and marketing, but first of all, it's the centre of attraction for students interested in electronics and tech. The work environment might be something very different from what you've seen in your country. For example, observing formalities, working hard and subordination are critical there. Have you heard of the concept "karoshi"? It means death caused by overwork or job-related exhaustion. Well, let it not frighten you. After all, internships are temporary. What's more, you'll be charmed by this country's unique culture and magnificent nature.

Having the 14th largest economy in the world, this country offers some good opportunities for young specialists. Apart from work and studies, you'll definitely have something to do there! The country is well-known for its vibrant atmosphere, tasty food, and, of course, architecture. Interesting internships in business, medicine, finance, and hospitality are available for English speakers; however, a basic knowledge of the main official language of the country wouldn't hurt, especially for those who are involved in working with people.

Another country for students interested in green technology, but that's not all! Young people specialising in IT, creative arts, engineering and social sciences are welcome. In general, this country is known for its positive atmosphere for start-ups. Many are attracted by a combination of big city vibes and wildlife with its vast beaches. It means that your experience outside the office or university will be as exciting. Also, you should know that local English is somewhat different from what you might have been studying, especially in terms of pronunciation and vocabulary. That's why you'll probably need some additional training in that area.

Do you want to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the classical English language? Then it's the right choice! Also, it's the perfect place for someone interested in business, finance, fashion... and also museums, parks, and pubs! If you're considering an internship in this country, the first city you think of is the capital. However, interesting options are available for interns throughout the country. Among the disadvantages, the high cost of living should be mentioned.
