About Bangkok, Thailand

Home to some of the world’s most beloved temples, like Wat Arun, Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Trimitr to name a few, Thailand’s capital city is the perfect place to immerse yourself in culture. The city is saturated with colorful markets, crowded streets, mouth-watering food, and people from the world over who believe it to be one of the best cities on Earth.

Shopaholics need look no further. Whether you’re looking for hidden gems or high-street fashions, Bangkok has it all in its endless markets. Roam through Yaowarat’s bustling alleyways, Bangkok’s buzzing “Chinatown.” Spend your weekend at Chatuchak Weekend Market, with a mere 8,000 vendors and 200,000 fellow visitors, both locals and foreigners alike. If you’re not feeling energetic enough to brave some of the world’s busiest markets, head over to Siam or Sukhumvit and check out the mega-malls. Don’t forget to do your food shopping at one of the floating markets - the sounds, smells and sights have no comparison.

Explore the true heart and soul of Bangkok in the Old City, visiting spectacular sites like the Grand Palace, Wat Phra Kaew and Wat Pho.

- Be a current university student at the time of application, or a graduate with a bachelor degree; AND

The Intern Group provides comprehensive guidance during the application process while applicants have to apply for the visa in person or by mail (whichever applicable) on their own. An ED visa typically costs 5,000 Thai Baht. The Intern Group program does not cover the visa fee and other associated expenses regarding the visa application.

What is the age requirement?

If you have finished high school, you qualify for our programs. We have a number of participants that are on their gap year, although the majority are completing undergraduate university degrees. Our programs are also suitable for recent university graduates, MBA graduates, and even experienced professionals in career transition. The key point is this: every internship we arrange is customized for each individual accepted onto our program, and for their unique background/stage of career.

Do I need prior work experience?

No. As we are a customized internship program, our roles coincide with each person’s education level and professional experience. We have a range of program participants – from those doing their first internship to executives with extensive, impressive careers who wish to experience a new career field/destination.

Who do you accept onto the program?

Our program participants have included Harvard MBA graduates to a 17 year old on their first overseas trip. What our thousands of alumni have in common is more fundamental than any educational or professional qualification – it is an international mindset, combining a desire and ambition to further themselves with a keen curiosity to learn more about the world.
