What to Expect as an Architecture / Design Intern Abroad

Architecture and interior design interns work in busy, professional settings. They are expected to know their way around CADD software at a minimum. Candidates will rarely shadow a partner in the firm. Instead, they will work under a Senior Manager or Project Manager or a Senior Architect/Interior Designer.

The architecture field is a little more strict in its requirements than most. Most of the time, firms are too occupied to go over more basic details. Past internships have required students in the field to speak an intermediate level of Spanish.

Due to similarities in fields, our candidates interested in interior design internships abroad also chose this Sector.

Hear From Past Interns

"I had a wonderful experience in Chile. My Spanish definitely improved. Or should I say my Chilean Spanish since they use so much slang? I loved my teacher so much and I am still in contact with her. My internship placement was great. I was an assistant to a professor who had other architecture projects as well. The professor was very nice, welcoming, patient, and open-minded. Overall, it was an awesome experience. I met some wonderful people, learned a little bit about a new culture, improved my Spanish, and my architecture skills."
