Get an estimate of your expenses

Global internships do cost money but if you plan the right way, you may return home with more money than you thought, and a poppin’ resume! It’s a win-win! 🤩So before you go, sit down with a budget worksheet and outline your anticipated costs.

  • Internship expenses can include housing, meals, transportation, health/travel insurance, and any extra expenses such as traveling, entertainment, etc. Making an outline for yourself to follow helps you to visually see what you will be spending while you are there.
  • The actual total cost will vary for each participant depending on spending habits and travel plans.  Understanding what’s included in your internship program fees is essential for you.
  • Write down everything such as what housing costs, how much public transportation is, and how much you want to spend on living expenses each week such as food and drinks.

Research, research, RESEARCH! 

  • Knowing how much things cost in another country is an important part of how to intern abroad on a budget. Don’t assume things will cost the same or even be cheaper.
  • Research the cost of basic necessities such as food, toiletries, the cost of a taxi, and even a coffee! It will help you be more prepared once you arrive and not overpay for your items.
