Please note that internships are available for students in their second semester of sophomore year or higher. Internship placements are in Spanish, and students must have completed the equivalent of four semesters of college-level Spanish.
An international internship is your opportunity to create a stand-out resume, and you will be challenged to apply your coursework to the work world, acquire cultural competence, and create professional connections that can last a lifetime. Not only will your LinkedIn profile get a boost, but your marketability to future employers will too.
Internships in GBI: Buenos Aires are 20 hours per week, excluding commuting time. In addition to workplace experience, you will also meet with peers and faculty for internship seminars to help you get the most out of the experience. Internships are always unpaid, always for three credits, and always pass/fail.
You can sign up for an internship regardless of your major as a part of the application process. Internships in BA are primarily with NGOs, and keep in mind that you will not know what your internship placement is until 14 days before departure. While this may seem like a long time to wait, remember that our partners are searching for an internship just for you. Your past experiences, coursework, and desired placements areas are all taken into account. This kind of personalized service takes time but is well worth the wait.
