By Internship

The Internship is what distinguishes Boston University Study Abroad from all the others. We were one of the first to create a work/study combination for students traveling abroad. We also work on-site with every student to craft an internship solution that reflects a student’s experience and interests.

Whether it’s in London, Sydney, Paris, Dublin, Madrid, Auckland, or one of our other locations, an internship should absolutely be part of the mix as you’re considering where to go abroad.
