Kaplan's internship programs combine a short English course with a professional, unpaid internship placement in Australia, New Zealand or Canada. This program is designed for people who already have intermediate English proficiency but want to improve it to a level where they can take part in an international business environment.
What are Internships?
A Kaplan professional Internship placement in Australia or New Zealand can give you valuable work experience with an English-speaking organisation, within the support and security of a Kaplan program. You'll receive expert help in interview practice and CV preparation and can choose from a wide variety of professional placements, in fields such as education, finance, hospitality, IT, law, marketing, media, PR and tourism.
You will improve the fluency and range of your English language skills in a real working context alongside native English speakers, add an international dimension to your CV and gain a competitive edge for your future career.
We are unable to offer standard internships in the United States due to F-1 visa restrictions, but we do offer part-time Practical Business English placements
as an alternative.
