It is because of this new demand for students to have and international working experience, that the UVM´s International team has developed the Explore program which aims to help students find their internship opportunities in the Valparaiso Region while allowing students to build critical skills that will help them succeed in the global landscape.
Explore is a customized internship program which will provide students with valuable knowledge that can help with their professional development. All of the internships we place students in are eligible for academic credit. The UVM will appoint a faculty supervisor and workplace mentor focused on helping and guiding the student throughout their internship. Students will receive an academic transcript, feedback reports, and a final work evaluation.
Optional Spanish as a Foreign Language courses are available for students, as is a homestay accommodation with a local Chilean family.
Commitment – Willingness to learn about the internship placement, but also the cultural working environment in Chile. – Internship hours depend on the cooperation, or agency. – Placements available for Undergraduate and Graduate Students
