What is a virtual internship?

A virtual internship, also sometimes called a remote internship, is an opportunity to work remotely (i.e. not in-person) for an organization while gaining experience in a given field. CIS Abroad's virtual internship programs offer a guaranteed internship placement that students engage in from home-- or anywhere-- while also taking part in online seminars, professional development activities, and cross-cultural debriefs that add to the experience. Students can even earn a Working Remotely Across Cultures Micro-Credential or academic credit for the experience if they'd like.
