International Education Internship
Between 2000 and 2016, the International Education Internship at the Queen’s University International Centre (QUIC) provided a unique training ground for new professionals interested in launching a career in the field of International Education. In its inception, the internship was the only such opportunity across Canada, and it has since inspired other internships to develop at a few institutions across the country. The intern was introduced to aspects of international education including inbound and outbound student advising and orientation, program/project design and coordination, volunteer coordination, health insurance in Canada and abroad, implementing health and safety policies and procedures for student mobility, and communications and promotion. The internship also included an independent study project.
