Application Process

How to Get Started

Browse through our program destinations and available career fields to get an idea of what you’re looking for. Be sure to also look over program fees and start dates, which vary according to destination. The experience of a lifetime is only a few steps away!

1. Application

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

First, you must fill out an application form found on our “Apply Now” page. The application form will ask for basic information and a copy of your resume/CV. You will then be taken to our online calendar to book an interview time with our admissions team. Please ensure to complete this step. Your application will not be submitted otherwise.

2. Interview

In a 20-minute Skype/phone interview, we will ask you about your previous experience, goals, and motivations. We will also discuss the opportunities available within your desired program destination and industry sectors. This is your chance to shine and show us why you would be a good candidate for our program.

Please refer to our blog post for more details about The Intern Group interview.

3. If you are successful in your interview with us, confirm your program placement with a deposit.

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.

We will refund your payment if we are unable to place you in your first or second choice career field by the placement deadline – giving you peace of mind that you will have a fantastic internship experience abroad. (Note, however, that we cannot give a refund if you withdraw yourself from the program.)

4. Collaborative internship placement process & pack your bags!

Once we have received your deposit, you will have formally confirmed your place on our program. You will also pay your remaining program fee during this phase. Typically, a payment will be due 30 days after your deposit. Complete payment details will be communicated by email, and also can be found on our fees page and in our Terms & Conditions.

Our expert placement team in-destination will engage in a collaborative internship placement process with you and prepare you to Skype/phone interview for a well-suited role in your preferred industry sectors. The interview(s) with host companies/organizations will typically be arranged 4-12 weeks prior to your arrival in destination.

Your internship role will typically be confirmed 4-8 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.
