As the custom internship division of CIEE, the Academic Internship Council (AIC) is dedicated to partnering with colleges and universities to provide high-quality student internships abroad that add value to their academic programs.

We share your mission of student growth and achievement—and we have nearly three decades of experience helping academic institutions achieve that mission.

Our Philosophy

We believe student growth is best served through well-rounded internships that combine cultural, academic, and professional development experiences based on each student’s aspirations, skills, and experience. We believe the best way to deliver these experiences is through close, collaborative partnerships with the universities and colleges we serve. And we believe expert, local support throughout the internship is crucial to each student’s success while working abroad.

Our goal at AIC is not merely to provide internship programs. We are committed to creating value for all of our constituents: academic partners, student interns, and employers.

Hear from one of our interns in Berlin, who we recently placed as part of his CIEE Global Internship program.

What People are Saying

  • “AIC did a fantastic job of identifying my interests and placing me with an extraordinary organization. The orientation and all preparatory materials were very thorough and helpful in adjusting to this new professional setting as well as the greater area.”

    Michelle R., Society for Nutrition Education and Health Action
  • “I could not recommend this program enough. Not only did it benefit my degree it allowed me to live & work in hands down the most unique and diverse country ever. You cannot put a price on the skills and experiences you will gain from your time in Mumbai. I truly forged some amazing friendships with my work colleagues and I'm counting down the days until I can go back. Fiery india will blaze in your memory long after you've left its shores.” 

    Jade L., Welfare of Stray Dogs
  • “Doing an internship in Mumbai was of great importance not only as a Community Planning student but also as a person. It was such a mindset reshaping experience that I would always go back to similar contexts and experience alternative social and urban dynamics. Mumbai has lots of challenges for planners and politicians as well as it has lots to offer as lessons.” 

    Adriano F., Society for the Promotion of Area Resource Centres (SPARC)
