The Intern Group Offers Internship Opportunities Abroad

The Intern Group is the leading provider of international internship programs across the globe. NSHSS members benefit from a 10% discount year-round on the internship program of their choice. However, we are currently offering one exceptional NSHSS member a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We are awarding the successful candidate a 6 week scholarship in Summer 2016. The outstanding candidate will spend six weeks interning at a world-class company in the destination of their choice: London, Madrid, Colombia, Hong Kong, or Australia.

The scholarship is an excellent opportunity to gain invaluable international experience. Participants who complete our programs are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd when applying for full time jobs post-graduation. As well as gaining hands-on experience from the internship, our programs also include a professional development workshop, an industry-leading workplace performance assessment and expert training materials on key topics to ensure that participants get the most out of their experience. Additionally, the internship can be used to gain academic credit.

We have previously placed interns with a variety of diverse companies, organizations and associations across the globe, including:

  • The Colombian Government
  • FIFA
  • Grant Thornton
  • Bell Pottinger
  • Quintessentially
  • Henley Media
  • TEDxHK
  • OnetoOne Finance
  • Atlético de Madrid
  • Indura Group
  • BanColombia

As well as propelling professional development, our programs are tailored to ensure cultural immersion. As a program participant, the lucky winner will benefit from a full calendar of social and cultural events specific to each destination. Watch a musical in the world-famous West End in London, climb the 650 steps of the Peñol de Guatapé and admire the view in Colombia, take a tour of the globally-renowned Real Madrid football stadium in Madrid, spend a weekend in Macau (the Vegas of Asia) in Hong Kong, or take a trip to Phillip Island to see the Penguin Parade in Australia. Our destination teams are comprised of locals who know their cities inside-out and want to show our participants everything! The teams are constantly organizing cultural and social events so that our interns can soak up the environment around them, fully immerse themselves and simultaneously meet an international network of friends and potential professional contacts.
