- Can I do an internship in Buenos Aires and how do I apply?
Yes! The for-credit internship program helps to arrange students’ placement with a local organization (with an expected commitment of at least 10 hours per week) and convenes a required weekly seminar, for a total of 4 credits. Please note that the internship program in Buenos Aires is competitive and acceptance into the internship program is not guaranteed. The deadline to apply for an internship is Friday, October 28 (see application here). After review of internship applications, students may be contacted and asked to do a Skype interview with the language coordinator in Buenos Aires to assess Spanish conversational ability.
You can also apply to do a non-credit internship- it is the same application noted above (you would indicate “non-credit”) and it is also due October 28.
NYU Buenos Aires also has a very strong and exciting Volunteer & Community Service Program. This program is open to all students, not for credit, and generally involves fewer hours per week than the academic internship program. A survey must be submitted at least a month prior to arrival and placements will depend on the student’s language level. Students will work with on-site staff to secure volunteer placements during orientation.
