Intern Abroad in the Czech Republic - Prague
Why Intern in the Czech Republic?
The Czech Republic is an ideal destination for interns looking to experience Europe through an unconventional lens. Located in the heart of Europe, the Czech Republic has a long history of both Eastern and Western influence. While aesthetically Eastern European, the Czech Republic has mirrored their Western European neighbors in economic development. This fairly new, yet highly developed nation is bustling with opportunities for international interns, while providing a unique culture to experience in their free time. Whatever your field of interest may be, an internship in the Czech Republic is sure to provide a unique, and affordable, experience in Europe.
Interns can expect to work side by side with local colleagues, receive direction from a manager or staff member, and behave just as one would in a real job. On weekends or after work hours, interns engage in a host of activities depending on each participant’s tastes. Interns share meals with new friends or host family members, take in cultural events, explore the city, or even take day or weekend trips outside of the area. World Endeavors provides a list of possible activities in the area and the World Endeavors local coordinator can also function as an ever present guide and ambassador to the area.
Live in Prague
In the heart of Europe lies Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic. The narrow cobblestone streets, hidden courtyards and historic chapels make this city one of the most beautiful in the world. After the Velvet Revolution, Prague was elevated to a status along that of bigger European cities such as Rome and Paris, but is still quite a hidden gem to be discovered. The city offers a rich cultural life enjoyed through museums, art galleries, festivals, concerts, theaters and pubs. Prague’s central location also provides the perfect launch pad for weekend excursions to other European destinations such as Budapest, Vienna, Berlin, Bratislava and more!

Internships for Credit
Are you doing your internship to fulfill an academic requirement, or would you just like to earn some academic credits for your internship experience? World Endeavors is here to help. Our advisors are experienced in coordinating internships to meet students' academic requirements. Contact World Endeavors to learn more!
Language Training: Czech language proficiency is not required in order to participate in this program. For interns wishing to learn some Czech during their time abroad, 20 hours of Czech lessons are included during the first two weeks of the program in conjunction with the internship placement. Classes are small and are offered at a variety of levels to suit interns’ needs.
Housing: World Endeavors interns in Prague live in single or shared rooms in shared apartments, equipped with kitchen and bathroom facilities. Accommodations are situated on a quiet street, only 15 minutes from the historical city center.
Dates: Internships are available year round, and each placement is customized for the participant. This means that World Endeavors interns can choose the start date and duration of their internship, as well as the field. Due to holidays, traditional vacation schedules, and seasonal work availability, there might be better times than others to intern in a specific location or in a specific field. Our advisors work with interns to ensure that their timeframe works adequately with the internship site. This communication is a key to creating a successful internship placement.
Duration: Generally, the minimum duration for interning in Prague is 1 month and, due to visa constraints, the maximum duration is 3 months. Contact World Endeavors if you would like to go for duration outside of this.
Cost: See our website for program fee information
