The Program

International experience is becoming increasingly essential to today’s employers. Prague, as the capital of the Czech Republic and the heart of Central Europe, is a dynamic city with a rich history and exciting contemporary culture. The Prague Summer Internship Program offers students the opportunity to gain professional experience internationally in addition to experiencing the culture of one of Europe's most interesting cities. Our interns are placed in a variety of industries, including business, the arts, media, and entrepreneurship. Successful candidates are clear about their interests and goals in advance of their summer arrival and are prepared to work hard by fully immersing themselves within a new culture.

Internship Placements

OIP staff and EUSA Academic Internship Program coordinate placements and provide in-country support for BC students interning in Prague. EUSA staff in Prague draw on an extensive network to identify individual placements based on student skills, prior work experience, interests, and academic or professional goals. From finance to education, the placement team provides intellectually engaging internships for students across a broad range of industries. All internships are conducted in English.  

All internships are unpaid due to foreign labor and visa regulations. 

Finances


Students will be billed for summer programs via their Agora account in early May, and payment is due prior to departure. Any questions related to billing should be directed to Student Services. 

Three separate costs are billed to Agora: TBD
  • Program fee ($4,200)
