Why spend your summer running for coffee and working the copy machine when you could be experiencing the exciting country of Australia? The Education Abroad Network Internship Program collaborates with top industry leaders in the country and provides students with an all-inclusive internship experience! Take advantage of our connections in Australia, earn credit from your home university, meet new friends and create excellent business contacts during your summer or semester internship abroad! We have several pre-arranged positions in exciting industries like Sports Marketing, Community Development, PR, Physical Therapy or Business Consulting. Many of our positions are long-standing exclusive arrangements with TEAN in much sought-after Australian and international organizations. While we have placed interns in a range of academic and professional disciplines, not all areas might be available.

"Say yes to life. These four words sum up my experience in Australia, and it would have been impossible without TEAN. Being alone on the other side of the world changed me for the better, made me more confident, and I will always have a place in my heart for TEAN and Sydney, even more so for the friends I made there. I had an opportunity to fulfill my dreams and work for a professional sports team, but that's only a drop in the bucket compared to the experiences and memories I have from Sydney. The opportunity to do something unheard of was presented to me at the beginning of my sophomore year, and I could not have predicted the impact it has made on my life."

PLEASE BE AWARE that this program offers no academic credit. You can consider earning ISU independent study credit (talk to your academic advisor about this). If you do not earn any academic credit, you cannot use your ISU financial aid (but can still apply for loans). If you opt for ISU independent study credit, you will be paying both the provider's program fee as well as ISU tuition and fees for the number of credits you'll earn.
