Some study abroad programs offer internships, usually only for full-year students. Only one program specializes in this: Internships in Francophone Europe program (IFE). To receive credit for an internship you must obtain pre-departure approval.
Internships can be found through the French-American Chamber of Commerce (FACC) and the French Embassy. The French Embassy arranges fulltime internships of 3 months or less; the French American Chamber of Commerce arranges for professional training positions of 3 to 18 months. Both programs provide the following services: recruitment of qualified Americans with companies in France; government authorization to work and reside in France for individuals who have received a company offer. There is no charge for these services.Back to top
