About Your Accomodation


An apartment shared with other interns in the city means you’ll be shopping for and preparing your own meals, and sharing cleaning duties and communal living spaces. World Internships can arrange safe and secure apartment housing for you within a reasonable commute time to your internship site.


A fantastic way to enhance your cultural immersion, many interns find a homestay to be a “home away from home.” You’ll live with a local host family, participating in their household routines, traditions and meals, giving you a true local taste of your destination.

Independent Housing

Independent housing allows you to opt out of our arranged accommodation options (and the associated fees) and find your own. This option works best when you have friends or family members living in your destination, or a strong housing lead that you feel comfortable pursuing.
