Internship Abroad

International internships are for you who want to travel, experience new worlds and to gain important work experience in a multicultural environment.


An international internship program provides the participants with an excel whether working with or studying health, human sciences or any other field. It is undeniable that the globalisation and the reduction of the barriers between countries have reached a point that the more you understand different cultures, languages and realities, the more prepared you are to live in your current society. Following this idea, having the opportunity to do an internship abroad is a differential not only in a professional way but in a personal way of growth as well.


An international internship is an excellent opportunity to gain professional working experience abroad. Through the Internship Experience in Brazil, university students can get a valuable experience in their field of study. More than that, it is your single chance to acquire new skills, while exploring a foreign culture and its traditions. During your internatioinal internship you will also have the opportunity to meet new people, learn a different language and get professional improvement that will make a difference in the competitive work market.


Internship positions in Brazil are available in several different areas: social sciences, business, IT, international affairs, marketing, humanities and the arts, among others.


One of the benefits often mentioned when employers are asked what they see in candidates that have already had an international experience, is the fact that working as an intern in another country teaches the students to deal with people they do not really share opinions and values with in a more successfull way. This reflects the increased focus on employability within internationalisation. Traineeships are also essential to get a feeling of the work environment, get to know the language used in the professional area and to learn more about the field and the opportunities it offers. Having an international experience will make the students much more prepared to start working after graduation. Besides, the students develop skills such as problem solving, critical thinking and independece during their internshp abroad. Being a work based learning opportunity, international internships enhance the best qualities of the student while gaining practical experience by combining them with the in-depth knowledge that has already been acquired in the university. International job placements allow the students to build global and multicultural competencies and work on their potential from that point and on.


You might be asking yourself why work in Brazil, when there are so many other countries offering the experience to work abroad? Well, Brazil is a country in development that plays an important role in the global economy and geopolitics. Brazil is a BRICS member, a group formed by the most fast growing emergents in the world, which include Russia, India, China and South Africa. Besides, it is the biggest country in Latin America and currently holds the 7th place of the biggest economies worldwide. Brazil offers a lot of chances for students interested in interning abroad.

An unforgettable experience

“My experience as a BE international intern was life changing. This was made possible by the incredible family I was matched with, the smooth transition assistance provided by BE and the beautiful country and people of Brasil! BE team made it a priority to make sure I felt comfortable, safe and that I was enjoying my experience to the fullest. Thank you, Brazilian Experience!!”

Brazilian experience is the BEST experience!

Rafaela & her team are great. BE is one of the most supportive & accommodating programs I have ever experienced. There were a few unexpected changes during my program both on the housing & internship sides, but BE was seamless with their assistance. The entire trip was smooth. Not only does BE fulfill the requirements of the program, but they are very helpful & flexible with any general interests, last minute debacles, & even random shenanigans from us more spontaneous people. Even if BE cannot help Michelle and Jules at our Farewell dinner                                      directly they find the information you need to do it on  your own. The response time & friendliness is impeccable.
Some things my group appreciated most:

1) BE’s willingness to help us plan unscheduled extracurricular excursions (I mean you cannot go to Brazil and not travel at least a little bit!). We were based in Curitiba, but Rafaela & her team helped us plan trips to Morretes, Foz do Iguaçu & Floripa and even gave us insider tips for our pending trip to Rio de Janeiro.
2) BE’s enthusiasm to teach us about Brazilian culture while still honoring & incorporating our home culture. For example, we celebrated Festa Junina AND the 4th of July. With BE no question is unanswered, no question is too stupid, & there are never too many.
3) BE’s attention to detail & flexibility. My internship was perfectly suited to my major & interests. It was convenient & the people were great. On the flipside, I remember one guy’s supervisor quit one day at this internship and basically left him hanging. BE had a new placement for him within a day or two and he was able to complete the academic requirements with no problem & still had a positive experience.
4) BE is not just a faceless company, you could always reach someone. The BE staff, the homestay families, & even Rafa came and hung out on numerous occasions and made sure we had exactly what their name implies: an EXPERIENCE.
My trip was in 2012 and I still keep in touch with Rafa, her team, & the great people I met along the way. To this day, my trip with BE is still one of the best experiences of my life & I am quite the adventurer! 🙂 My only regret is not being able to go back and visit more often.
