As you are probably well aware, an internship abroad would be a huge advantage to have on your CV and resume and give you a fast track to gaining valuable experience in your field of study. Did you also know that international internships are also an excellent method of gaining insight and appreciation into a whole new culture, while also lending your skills, talents, and experience to global problems/conflicts?
International internships abroad arranged by Jamaica International Projects do not only act as stimulus to boost your career trajectory, they also place you in real-world situations where you will be forced to act, thus developing your critical thinking skills, guide you with working well with others, and lay the foundation for you to distinguish yourself as a leader in your field.
Summers make ideal times for internships, though we offer internship year round, so you can come whenever convenient to you. Browse through our internships below for more information.

If you are enrolled in a university you may be able to earn academic credit while on your overseas internship. We would be happy to liaise with the appropriate department at your school to make these arrangements, and to provide any necessary documentation.
In addition to your abroad internships, you may also combine your trip with a volunteer program, a cultural immersion project or even an adventure package.
