Be an Intern in France

The “French & Internship” program is a life changing linguistic and cultural experience where you will have the opportunity to learn French at school as well as in an international work environment. By joining a host company in France, an internship will enable you to discover the workplace “à la française”.

To take full advantage of the training and make your internship a key reference on your resume, you must adapt and show motivation, curiosity and dynamism. In order to guarantee an enjoyable atmosphere, it is important to communicate spontaneously with your internship supervisor and team.

Interviews with Host Companies

Interviews with Host Companies

We offer internships matching your profile and availability. Internship interviews take place either on Skype (if done before the arrival in France) or at the office of the host company (if done after the arrival in France).

Be prepared, attending the interviews are mandatory and know that the interview is only a formality for most host companies.

We have implemented a flexible schedule, allowing you to meet the host company when you are not in class. A maximum of 3 interviews will be set up for each student.

The Host Companies

Internship opportunities depend on your profile and the availability of host companies. Duration of the internship will be agreed on during the interview with our team.

Your level of French, your educational background and your enthusiasm will determine the position, tasks and responsibilities that will be given to you within the company. All kinds of professional experience will enrich your CV for the host company.

Please note that we disclaim all responsibility for internal issues that might arise with the management or employees in the company.
