Semester at Sea
This is by far the most attractive offers out there for a semester. Carried out under the umbrella of the University of Virginia, you get to sail on a boat and visit 11 countries while you gain academic profession along the way. Bon Voyage!
One of the most sought after countries by student residence for an internship abroad as France and especially Paris brings you the whole platter. From natural beauty to architecture and from Pubs to fine dining restaurants, France has it all.
The United Kingdom
The easiest place to pick up an internship because of the non-existent language barrier. Live a summer full of antique culture that has its roots in traditions from hundreds of years ago. You can also decide to work in a fast past city like London or slow paced suburbs as per your own wish and choice.
If you want to join your internship with an adventure-filled summer tagged along with religious history, then Israel is the place to intern this summer.
The most scenic countries of all with opportunities that can easily be grabbed as it is not the number one choice for people willing to intern away from home. An English speaking country with classy mountains, volcanoes, and beaches to devour. What else do you need?
Fall in love with a culture that has love embedded in it. With a busy lifestyle and cultural heritage to go along, you will find everything you want to see in the world in this one country alone. From the tomato fight to a bullfight, you can experience all of it in Spain.
Get out of your comfort zone and explore the world one summer at a time. Staying in a Montreal Student residence will not build up interesting stories to be told once you are a grandfather!
