With a history spanning 28 centuries, including some of the most documented and successful human civilizations, Rome continues to be a cultural center and business hub with amazing internship opportunities in English for all areas of business and marketing, fashion, art, culinary, tourism & hospitality, architecture and more. Whether you’re earning valuable work experience in a global capital—or on your free time—strolling by the Spanish Steps, circling the Colosseum or taking in Trevi Fountain, you’ll forever want to do as the Romans do.


Complete a full-time internship abroad and lay the groundwork for your future career! Work in a global environment and learn about your field from a cross-cultural perspective. 
ISEP and our partners at Global Experiences work with you to find an internship placement that matches your career aspirations, educational background and location preferences. During the application process, you will conduct a brief phone call with an ISEP Advisor to learn about your goals for interning abroad. If accepted, you will be guaranteed an internship in your desired career field and location.  

In the months leading up to the term abroad, you will be matched with potential employers and interview with them directly to learn more about each other. If everything goes well, the internship is finalized. You will know your internship placement and role before you depart to your host country. 


Interns will have a single or shared room in a shared apartment. Your roommates will be other interns with Global Experiences or students from other language or study programs in Rome, providing plenty of opportunities to meet new people from all over the world! The apartments are located throughout the main central areas, close to public transport line. All apartments have a shared kitchen and living areas. Each apartment is different, so the location within the city and other building amenities will vary.

Housing fee is included in overall tuition cost. Prices are subject to change.
