UC Davis Summer Abroad Internships is an academic program that aims to enhance students’ education by incorporating academic coursework with experiential learning outside of the classroom setting. This program carries a total of 6.00* quarter units in seven weeks.
Students on Summer Abroad Internship programs earn regular UC Davis course credit which may be used to fulfill degree, major, minor, General Education (GE) requirements. UC Davis students can use Summer Abroad courses to fulfill their academic requirements as listed in the General Catalog. Students from other campuses should consult with the academic advisors from their home campuses to determine whether courses taken on our programs may be used to fulfill their specific academic requirements.
See Academics to learn more about applying Summer Abroad coursework toward your major/minor/General Education requirements.
Auditing is not an option.
*Note: Semester students who will apply for Summer Financial Aid should contact Summer Abroad to inquire about enrolling in additional unit(s).
Students will intern approximately 28 - 32 hours per week at their host company and will be able to apply for transcript notation through the UC Davis Internship and Career Center. Depending on the specific internship, the onsite time may include weekend hours.
This 2-unit online course is a forum to connect the work students do at their internship to its broader social and cultural context. Through online discussions, students will have a community with whom to share their reflections and observations about their internship placements and to explore the significance of interning in an international context.
No prerequisites are enforced for this program beyond the general eligibility requirements.
Internship Placement Process
After you have completed the UC Davis Study Abroad online enrollment, EUSA will ask you to register with them via their online Student Gateway. In the Student Gateway you will upload your:
- Current resume/CV
- Personal information and internship preferences
- Additional information including health history, emergency contacts, housing preferences, etc.
You should expect to have a Skype meeting with EUSA Prague staff in March. You should be prepared to discuss your career field focus, relevant experience, interests, as well as the professional, personal, and cross-cultural skills you hope to gain over the course of the internship during your meeting with the Prague-based placement coordinator. EUSA will ask you to identify three areas of interest. They will attempt to place you in your primary field of interest, though you should be flexible and be willing to accept a placement in one of your other fields of interest if necessary.
Resume and Cover Letter Resources
We strongly recommend that all students meet with an advisor at the UC Davis Internship and Career Center to have their resume and cover letter reviewed prior to submitting these documents to our internship placement partner, CEA. The ICC provides many online resources, such as resume, cover letter and letter of recommendation examples.
