Quick Reminder re: Non-Credit Internships in France and Spain

Non-credit internships (paid or unpaid) are not permitted in France or Spain; thus, NYU cannot sign conventions de stage (France) or convenios (Spain) for non-credit internships. As all internships in these countries must be credit-bearing, students can only participate in internships if accepted into the Global Academic Internship Program while enrolled at NYU Paris or NYU Madrid. Students accepted into the Internship program must be enrolled in the Internship Seminar and Fieldwork course (NODEP-UA 9982), which is offered during Fall and Spring semesters only.

Thank you for your support of the Global Internship Program. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at global.internships@nyu.edu.
