    • Climbing the steps of El Peñól for 360-degree views of the landscape

  • Airport pick-up upon arrival in Medellin
  • Live personal support throughout the program, including placement counseling, resume and cover letter guidance, on-site local staff, free & confidential access to mental health services provided by licensed professionals, and a session with a professional career coach after your internship is complete

Program Dates and Length

The internship component of the program is full-time, 32 to 40 hours per week. You choose when you want to start and the length of your internship (6 to 24 weeks). While you are welcome to apply at any time, for the best experience we recommend starting the process at least 3 months in advance of your desired start date.

Application and Internship Placement Process

  1. Apply - Fill out our short application form, attach your resume/CV, and schedule an online interview with our Admissions team. Applying is fast and free.
 
  1. Connect with The Intern Group's Admissions Team - Similar to an advising session, we will discuss your internship and career goals, and the program structure that best suits your professional and personal needs. Be prepared to talk about your background and goals. During this process we will review your application and determine your eligibility to participate in the program.
 
  1. Receive your decision - Within 1-3 days, we will send you our admissions decision. If you are accepted into the program, you can confirm your enrollment by submitting a deposit toward the program fee. 
 
  1. Begin the Internship Placement Process - Once you are enrolled in the program, our placement team will create a professional profile for you and share it among our network of host organizations in Medellin to find an internship opportunity that matches your goals. You will then have an interview with the host organization to ensure that it is a good match, and you also will begin the visa process if necessary.

Safety

Since 2012, we have provided a safe and rewarding experience in Medellin for more than 1300 international interns. We have a professional, year-round staff in Medellin who provide in-person guidance on all matters, including health and safety. It is also important to note that the security situation in Colombia has changed in recent decades. In the current UK government travel advice for Colombia, most of the country (including Medellin) is in normal "green" status, the same status as other popular destinations like France or Italy. 

Academic CreditInterns in Madrid

Our School of Record, Florida A&M University, can issue a transcript for participation in The Intern Group’s internship programs. Each 40 hours of your internship program equates to 1 credit, subject to a minimum of 3 credits and a maximum of 9. 

Whether you can receive academic credit for an internship depends on your university’s policies and your individual academic situation. Please carefully read our page on academic credit here.

Program Cost

Our programs have a fee, which covers all of the features described above. Because the programs include housing accommodation, the fee amount depends on the dates/length of your internship. You can look up the exact amounts and full details of the program fees on our website here. Also note that the internships typically are unpaid, subject to the decision of the host company and the rules of your visa.
