Global Development Studies

Internship opportunities

Gain real life experience in the global development field when you journey abroad with one of the international internship opportunities offered through UFV.

UFV's global network of host organizations in Africa, India and Mexico gives you the chance to make a difference in the developing world because you will be directly involved with undertaking research or delivering programs in areas of community development, human rights or social justice. Practice your language skills, experience life in another culture and broaden your knowledge of global issues such as free trade, child poverty and heathcare in developing nations. 

Apply your classroom learning in a workplace setting under the supervision of a business, government agency or non-governmental organization (NGO), vetted by UFV.
