UW-Madison International Connections

Our office can help establish an internship arrangement that benefits both UW-Madison students and your connections abroad. If you have contacts, or even just an idea for an internship in your discipline, please contact us.

How much work is involved?

Our role is to facilitate the logistics and liability of the internship coordination – so you won’t need to!

We recognize that faculty and staff have busy schedules, so we are flexible and able to involve you to the extent that makes you feel most comfortable.

Here are some ways that you could be involved in the process:

  • sharing the name of a partner that you work with who may be interested in hosting an intern
  • providing background about your relationship to the organization
  • introducing us to your partners via email or video call
  • sharing the internship opportunity with students and colleagues

Students can earn credit for internships through the Worldwide Internship Program online course, but many also seek an optional directed/independent study arrangement as a complement to explore a discipline-specific topic, following campus policy.

Faculty and staff are key partners in sharing internship opportunities with students!

Please let us know if you would like any of the following:
