Internships in Colombia

Cultural immersion & community in Colombia

The Colombian Experience

Medellin is a vibrant, colorful city that people from all over the country and the world call home. The friends and connections you make while living in Colombia will last a lifetime. More than 150 nationalities are represented in The Intern Group’s global community, which is made up of passionate global professionals from every possible background. While in Medellin, you’ll be immersed in both Colombian culture and the international community that exists there. The choice to pursue local or international connections will be up to you, but we always recommend both!

Cultural events

In addition to an internship in your career field, our internships in Colombia program provides an entire cultural experience.

24/7 support

Traveling abroad for your internship is a big step. Our on the ground Colombia team offers 24/7 support with local expertise, from start to finish. Paisas are extremely eager to show the rest of the world why Colombia is so great! They will organize your airport pick-up when you arrive in Medellin. The team will also provide a thorough welcome orientation to help you settle into the city and feel at ease. Our Colombia team is available throughout your internship program should you have any questions or queries.

We also partner with Talkspace to provide all our participants with fully anonymous access to a licensed online therapist for up to 3 months. This ensures you’ll always have someone to talk to when adjusting to life in your new city.

  2. Group classes during your internship

    • Our 2-week intensive course is perfect if you want to immediately boost your Spanish. It consists of 40 hours of group classes, running from 9 AM to 1 PM, Monday-Friday. For this option, interns will go to their internship in the afternoon, after their Spanish class.
    • This general Spanish course gives you the opportunity to improve your all-around ability in Spanish by focusing on grammar, vocabulary development, speaking, listening and writing skills. Groups are always made up of fewer than 8 students. Everyone will be placed into a group of students with a similar level of Spanish.
    • Language classes are available throughout the whole year. Please note that they are not included in the program and have an additional cost of $500 USD. This will be paid in Colombia, directly to our partner university. Participants are also responsible for buying language textbooks.
