This article provides a rationale for international internships and gives concrete tips on how to develop them. It surveys works extolling the advantages of professional internships and those proving the value of study abroad. Combining these two into international internships is the focus of a growing number of programs. However, little has been said about how to develop international internships for students. The author specifically addresses France as a destination, explaining the process for obtaining visas for students wishing to make an internship in France part of their education. The author provides suggestions for making contact with French companies and with multinational companies with facilities in France.
