Embarking on an internship abroad is a pivotal step in professional growth when venturing into a new industry. It not only provides valuable experience for the interns but also offers numerous advantages to companies, such as support with various tasks, input of fresh perspectives, and the establishment of a talent pool for future recruitment. Choose to intern abroad through INLEX and gain hands-on experience in one of our partnered projects and organizations, allowing you to immerse yourself in real-world scenarios.
Interning abroad offers a unique experience compared to working in your home country, immersing you in a new environment with distinct challenges and learning opportunities. It is also a more enjoyable experience as it allows you to travel abroad, make new friends, and explore new places while interning.

Within our extensive network, we meticulously find the best internships and present to place our participants. Our process involves matching the intern’s profile with the internship position to ensure that both are satisfied – companies benefit from the interns’ work, while interns gain valuable experience.

Volunteering vs interning. What is the difference?
The key difference between an internship and volunteering is in the level of professional development and responsibility. Internships emphasize professional growth, with interns taking on higher levels of responsibility and different types of tasks compared to volunteers. Additionally, intern performance is evaluated by both the program and the host company, further highlighting the professional nature of the experience.
