global internships

The inbound Global Internship Program is available as a credit program for graduating college students and a non-credit program for fresh graduates. The internship program is credited through bilateral agreement with partner higher education institutions. The parameters for credit transfer is specified in partnership with the intern’s university/college. Meanwhile, the non-credited internship program is open to all interested applicants who are able to submit the required credentials. Both credited and non-credited internship programs will garner official certification from the local industry partner.

The program is a service placement of interns at Ateneo de Davao University (ADDU)’s local partner industries and institutions where they will acquire practical training and professional competencies. The internship placements can be with project or research-based institutions from private, non-government, or local community sectors.

The Global Internship Program is administered thematically, depending on the batch of interns’ courses or fields of specialization. The AIM Office will make sure the places for internship are aligned with the interns’ professional and curriculum goals. The program will be facilitated through traditional face-to-face learning, online learning, or blended learning (i.e. combination of traditional and online learning).

AIM has identified themes of specialization which will serve as the niche industries that effectively represent the primary social needs of Mindanao: Peacebuilding, Women, Children, and other Vulnerable Individuals, Indigenous Peoples, Environmental Sustainability and Preservation, and Social Entrepreneurship.

Program Overview

The remote internship program is available as a 3-unit credit program for undergraduate students, and as a non-credit program for graduates who intend to apply individually. The internship is therefore available to enrolled students from our partner universities all around the world.

The remote internship is short-term, entailing a comprehensive and flexible program design. Interns are provided with project-based deliverables that they would work on online. This global opportunity assists interns to acquire professional capacities and access industry-based knowledge remotely, even from their homes.

Online Learning Format

Distance learning ​allows interns to pursue their academic and professional goals without being required to meet the financial and economic standards that confine student mobility and international travel. A virtual internship also provides project-based work descriptions and flexible work schedules. This means that at the end of this program, interns are expected to develop outputs that will serve the mission of their host industry.

Various online educational platforms ensure fruitful virtual interactions. Through these platforms, host industries can provide online lessons/courseworks, group discussions/webinars, group check-ins, and comprehensive project plans/presentations. The framework also includes weekly work plans and assessments. This format will not only provide professional development through a global experience, but also enrich personal skills in t​ime management, organization, and self-discipline.

Themes and Placements

The program is administered thematically, depending on the intern’s course or field of specialization​. ​AIM has identified themes of specialization in its Global Internship Program that interns can choose from. It may be advocacies on ​Peacebuilding, Women and Children’s Rights, Indigenous Peoples, Environmental Sustainability and Preservation,​ and​ Social Entrepreneurship.
