internships & service-learning

Go beyond the classroom

Your students could participate in a unique study and experiential learning abroad program by combining academics, ISA Internships or Service-Learning options, and adding activities to tie these together. These opportunities add another dimension to the study abroad experience through daily interactions with locals, resulting in a greater understanding of the culture, community and language of the host country. Visit the ISA Internships and Service-Learning page for more information. 

Internships

ISA's Internship division works with local businesses and organizations across many different industries in the Pacific, Asia, Europe, and South America to provide an academically- and professionally-oriented internship experience. Internship programs can be offered as a stand-alone program or as an add on to another custom program. One of the great things about an ISA Internships Custom Program, is if you choose to co-brand one of our set-date programs or design a custom date internship program for your university, there is no minimum enrollment necessary, unless add-on excursions are built in. All ISA internships are designed to build professional skills and experience as well as provide a real-world experience to enhance classroom learning. 

Participants will participate in a full-time internship in their field that meets their current skill-level and future goals. ISA offers internships in the following sites: 

  • Australia
  • Chile 
  • China
  • England
  • Hong Kong
  • New Zealand 
  • Spain

Service-Learning

ISA's Service-Learning division has created lasting partnerships with local NGOs, schools, clinics and businesses in Africa, Asia, Latin America and the Middle East to provide structured service-learning projects. Service-Learning programs are available independently or may be combined with your university's customized academic course. All ISA amd Service-Learning programs are designed to encourage personal and professional growth, develop language proficiency and facilitate meaningful community engagement.

Participants have the opportunity to develop a Service-Learning Portfolio throughout the program which includes critical reflections, group discussions, weekly journal entries, logs of hours, supervisor evaluation and a certificate of completion. ISA offers service-learning in the following sites:
