Professional Development Tool

We have partnered with one of the world’s leading HR organizations (DDI International) to provide all of our participants with a “DISC” workplace personality and skills assessment, usually exclusive to CEOs and corporate leaders. With this tool, you can evaluate and better understand how you interact with others in the workplace and the relationships that you create there. The advice and guidance from this tool will enable you to effectively manage the impression people have of you and to build stronger relationships to make your work more efficient and effective.

Feedback from our participants about our professional development tool:

“This is incredibly accurate. It is funny to read about myself because it brings things to my attention that I don´t consciously think about but are definitely true.”-Ian Mussman

“I found it very useful (scarily accurate) and I’ll be sure to study it in detail.”-Martin Uhomoibhi

Expert Training Materials

In collaboration with HR experts, we have developed a library of training materials on a number of key topics essential to your development and growth. They include: interview techniques; making a lasting impression in the workplace; building your personal brand; resolving difficult situations and leveraging your internship experience into a successful career. These materials are carefully designed to complement your international internship and to help you excel in a global job market.


Our accommodation is located in the nicest area of the city, El Poblado. Housing options come with sheets, internet and cleaning as standard.

Crucially, we take great care to make sure that all our housing options are located within a reasonable commute (about 45 minutes) to your work or Spanish classes by bus, metro or walk.

Shared Apartment (private bedroom)

The shared apartment option provides you with a private bedroom in a shared apartment with other program participants and, occasionally, other vetted local students. This option is best if you wish to immediately make new friends and start exploring the city!

Top FAQs

Top FAQs | Internship | Financing | Misc.

Our participants´ safety is our number 1 consideration.

The security situation in Colombia has improved enormously in recent years. While certain rural areas of the country still experience problems, this will have no impact on your stay.

You will live, work & socialize solely in the safest areas of Medellin. All our housing is in the beautiful & very safe area of El Poblado.

Our full-time local team in Colombia will welcome you & give you a thorough safety orientation on arrival, in addition to providing 24/7 emergency support throughout your program.

How do you view re-applicants?

We have many more applicants for our program than places available. As a result of high competition, first-time applicants are given priority in our admissions process.

Do you offer financial assistance or scholarships?

We only offer scholarships through agreements with partner universities. We recommend speaking with your university to see if your university is a partner and what funding is available for our program. Available funding varies from partner university to partner university.

We do not offer scholarships to individuals who are not from one of our partner universities.

If you are an individual not from one of our partner universities please view the following links for 3rd party financial aid:

Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship: Institute of International Education
International Education Financial Aid: Financial Aid College Scholarship Search | IEFA
IE Passport Study Abroad Funding Directory: Study Abroad Scholarships | Study Abroad Funding | Institute of International Education

Can I live at home or a relative’s house and take the housing out of the cost?

We are generally unable to remove any elements from our all-inclusive programs. The employers we work with depend and ask for this service, as it guarantees your reliability. However, if you have particular needs please do contact us.

Can I see a list of employers or choose to intern at a specific company?

We do not provide a list of partner companies.

Firstly, our list of partner companies is not static. We often partner with new companies if they would be a better match for a participant. We have dedicated out-reach teams, working on our participants´ accounts, in all program destinations, meaning our list of partners is constantly growing and evolving.

Secondly, we do not provide a list as interns then attempt to “pick and choose” which companies they specifically want to work for. This promotes unrealistic expectations, as partner company needs, your wishes & background and external factors such as timing are all taken into account during internship-placement. If you are accepted into our program you are guaranteed a great role in your area of interest. However, due to the factors listed above a specific company cannot be guaranteed.

When will I find out where I am interning?

Our Colombia team will engage in a collaborative internship placement process with you and confirm your internship role typically around four to six weeks before your departure date. Please note this is a guideline and may differ during peak seasons.

What happens if I don’t get the internship I want?

When you apply you are asked to state your primary & secondary areas of interest (for example, primary preference: law, secondary preference: government & politics). You will be given the chance to discuss and confirm these sector choices during the phone/Skype interview with our Admissions Team.

Successful applicants are guaranteed a professional internship in their primary or secondary area of interest. We are highly experienced in internship placement and pride ourselves on successful matches between our participants and our partner companies. All companies we work with are extensively vetted to make sure they provide a rewarding internship experience for our talented participants.

Our confidence in our program is demonstrated by our full money back guarantee.

Our program comes with a full money back guarantee if you are not placed in your primary or secondary area of interest – giving you peace of mind that you will have a fantastic internship experience abroad. It should be noted that the vast majority of interns receive their primary preference area.

Can I speak with the Colombia Team before I am accepted and confirm my place in the program?

Due to high volume of applications, we only introduce successful applicants who have formally confirmed their place on the program to our team in Colombia.

The Internship

Top FAQs | Internship | Financing | Misc.

How does the internship placement process work

Our programs are competitive and early applications are encouraged. Early applications get primary consideration for the most competitive roles in our extensive network.

After applying to The Intern Group program and booking a convenient interview time, you will have a Skype/Phone interview with our Admissions Team.

In this 20 minute Skype/Phone interview we will question you about your background, experience and motivations, and discuss the opportunities available within your field.

After your interview you will be informed within 3 business days if you have been successful in your application. Successful applicants will then be formally offered a place in our program. You will be asked to confirm your place in the program by making a deposit. This deposit is fully refundable if you are not placed in your primary or secondary internship preference area – giving you peace of mind that you will have a fantastic internship experience abroad.

Once we have received your deposit you will have formally joined our program and we will introduce you to our team on the ground in your destination. Our team will engage in a collaborative internship placement process with you and prepare you to Skype/Phone interview for well-suited roles in your areas of interest. Interviews will typically be arranged 4-10 weeks prior to your arrival. Your internship role will typically be confirmed 4-6 weeks prior to your arrival (this is a guideline and may differ during peak seasons). We recommend that you book your flights once your internship details are confirmed. You are then all ready for a fantastic experience abroad.

Do I need to speak Spanish?

Although some Spanish knowledge is preferred, due to our extremely strong business links and focus on top partner firms, we are able to offer a variety of first class roles that do not have any Spanish language requirement.

What hours should I expect to work?

Typically, participants work an average work week of no more than 40 hours. The company at which you are interning will set your work hours but the majority of internships will take place between 9 am and 5 pm.

Will I obtain academic credit?

We work with universities around the world to assist their students with academic credit requirements. Please see our academic credit information page for more information.


Top FAQs | Internship | Financing | Misc.

When is payment due?

(d) However, if you withdraw from the Program for any reason before the placement deadline other than The Intern Group’s failure to place you by the Placement Deadline in your Preference Area, or if The Intern Group determines, in its sole discretion, that you did not fully co-operate in the placement process at any time before the Placement Deadline, The Intern Group will be entitled to 100% of your Initial Deposit. If you withdraw from the Program for any reason after being placed with a partner organisation, The Intern Group will be entitled to 100% of your Initial Deposit and 50% of the Program Fee.

All requests for refunds must be received in writing within 30 days of withdrawal.

I don’t need housing/social activities/etc – can I just pay for what I need?

Ours is an all-inclusive program for all participants, so we are generally unable to remove any elements from the program. However do get in touch if you have special requirements.


Top FAQs | Internship | Financing | Misc.

Is attendance at our events mandatory?

All of our events and activities that we organize are optional, but your internship is not. With The Intern Group, you may not miss work for any reason other than health and family emergencies unless previously approved by your employer.

Who will I be living with?

For those of you who choose to share an apartment you will be living with other participants on our program and, occasionally, vetted local students.

Housemate selection is determined by the time of year, accommodation availability and participants´ program specifics (such as duration of program).

Our focus is to encourage and provide a great experience for all and to manage serious issues before they become a problem.

It is your responsibility to have a nice, harmonious cohabitation. While we will assist in case of serious problems, we expect all accepted participants to display high levels of independence, responsibility and maturity.

Can I live in the accommodation for some time before or after my internship program?

We can only guarantee housing for the duration of your internship program. If you would like to stay longer, it may be possible to arrange this, but your program fee does not cover this cost and you will need to pay the accommodation provider for the extra time that you spend there.

When should I book my flights?

We recommend booking flights as soon as your internship role is confirmed.
This is approximately 4-6 weeks before arrival (please note in peak times this may vary).

What happens when I arrive in Colombia?

You will be picked up by our trusted driver on arrival in
Medellin and given a welcome pack & induction by
our team at your accommodation. In case you arrive
