Global Virtual Internships


Now is the perfect time to engage in meaningful international experiences from the safety of your own home. With the right company, a virtual internship can provide many of the same benefits that come with travel. It is a chance for you to build upon your intercultural communication skills, learn how to navigate time zones and deadlines across continents, and build an international network.

You can do all of this, while earning three FDU credits as well, through FDU’s latest partner, Connect-123. The video explains how this innovative opportunity works.


Build remote work skills valued by employers with a global virtual internship organized by FDU partner Connect-123. Placements are aligned with your interests and career goals; during the program, Connect-123 provides personalized support and professional development via group workshops and coaching sessions. FDU credit is available and FDU students receive a program discount.  For more information and to apply, contact Connect-123 Global Internship Programs.
