Vienna Summer - Internship

Program Overview

 IES Internships is now offering full-time placements in Vienna—the home of the very first IES Abroad Center.

As an IES intern, you’ll enjoy the history, rich culture, and professional opportunities that the political and economic capital of Austria has to offer. Recently ranked first in the Mercer Quality of Living survey, there’s nowhere and no way better to spend your summer than with a full-time internship in Vienna.

This IES Internships program guarantees you an internship in Austria that will help you develop professional skills to jump-start your career and make you more attractive to employers in today’s competitive job market.

IES Internships’ unpaid, academic summer internships place Vienna interns in fields such as the arts, international relations, psychology, and more (see our list below). Before you depart, we work with you to fine-tune your résumé, perfect your cover letter, hone your networking and interviewing skills, and prepare you for working in a new cultural environment.

As a summer intern, you'll work with a local business or organization for approximately 30 hours per week. You will also enroll in a required 3- or 6-credit academic internship seminar with other IES interns, where you’ll gain context for your internship placement by examining cultural issues in the workplace. You have the option of enrolling in a 3-credit German language course at no extra cost, as well, if your work schedule allows.

With IES Internships’ dedicated staff and international connections in Vienna, you can be sure that you’ll have an internship that meets your goals. You’ll learn, and learn to stand out!
 

Why Vienna?

We'd like to let you in on a little secret: Vienna is extraordinary. Quickly—gather your things and study there before more students realize what a hidden gem it is. Consistently rated one of the top cities in the world to live in, come see for yourself why the music, culture, and history of this world-class city elicit nothing but adoration from those who go there.

Student Life

We strive to make sure you feel safe, cared for, and at home while you’re away from home. Whether it’s the orientation program that makes you feel prepared, your housing that is well-located and comfortable, the cultural events that make it easy and fun to meet other international and local students, or the field trips and walking tours that take you to places tourists don’t usually see—we’re all about our student service. Learn more about the day-to-day studying abroad on this program. From field trips to housing, it’s all on IES Abroad’s website.
