Berkeley Summer Sessions works in coordination with
European Study Abroad (EUSA) and Academic Internship Council (AIC) to provide
students with comprehensive academic internship programs and support in various
locations around the world. With decades of placement history and strong
employer networks, EUSA and AIC bring expertise and experience to its
Rather than undergoing a time consuming search on their
own, our team works with students to find connections with firms that will support
their career goals in various locations. We offer internships in Dublin,
Madrid, and Singapore which combine the benefits of our domestic internship
program with international experience. In addition, participants will receive
comprehensive support from Summer Sessions' professional staff that includes
one-on-one career advising, interview preparation, resume review,
prepared-to-work seminars, and other placement services.
Participation in an internship is supported by enrollment
in a ten-week UC Berkeley online internship course, as well as a local culture
course designed to acclimate participants to the city they will be interning
at. Though the Bay Area site does not have a related culture course, we
encourage participants interning at this location to take an additional course
related to the field in which they are placed to help them further integrate
their professional experience with their academic skills and goals.
Gain invaluable professional experience and academic credit
by interning in Singapore, one of the world's most globalized countries.
Located on a series of islands at the end of the Malay Peninsula, this urban country
is a crossroads of international trade and a gateway to Asia. Singapore hosts
the headquarters of many multinational corporations, making it an exceptionally
diverse business community, which embraces a wide variety of industries. In
addition to your internship, you will be living on the National University of
Singapore campus. You will have access to the University's vast resources and
will be taking an on-site seminar with local faculty, which will explore the
many layers of current Singaporean society. Outside of your internship and the
classroom you might be able to pick up some Chinese, Malay, or Tamil while
exploring the diverse country via an excellent public transportation system.
The Singapore Internship Program offers internships in
almost any field. Once you have been admitted to the program, you will meet
with our team to talk about your interests and background based on which we
will find you an internship in Singapore. We can't promise to find you an
internship at a specific firm or organization, but we do promise to find you an
internship that corresponds to your specific interests and background.
