8-week Internship


Develop real-world skills and experience with a leading company in one of nine professional fields. You'll work with a team of advisors to secure an internship, in your selected city and industry, where your skills and aspirations are well matched.



In an ever-evolving economy and employment market it's critical to make every career move count. The Career Navigator Course will equip you with the knowledge and confidence to make intelligent career decisions.

Leadership skills and commercial awareness invariably fill the top two spots on any prospective employer's wish list. The Future Leaders Course, comparable to a condensed MBA course, provides insight into key business concepts that will help you think and act like a business leader.

As part of the Global Accelerator Program you'll enjoy a series of web-based classes and exercises to help you excel during your internship and beyond.



Our Course Instructors are dedicated to help you make the most of the opportunity. Beginning with skills and career fit assessment, we’ll professionally review your resume and prepare you for interviews. Your program will include a mid- and end-of-program appraisal with regular feedback and we’re here to offer job search advice and support if you need it once your graduate.

I only have positive things to say about my experience with CI, including the prompt responses, support and encouragement from their staff. Continue helping other people who need to get out there and gain a taste of a real work environment that will benefit them moving forward. Work experience is essential for students to explore an industry and decide whether to pursue a career in that area.

Please note that fees exclude the Enrollment Fee. Fees are stated exclusive of prevailing sales or value added taxes.

We’re an accelerated learning, travel and work experience provider all-in-one. We’re confident you won’t find an experience that offers more for less anywhere else.

Most accelerated learning providers rely wholly on tuition fees. We don’t. We think a sole reliance on funding from fees can turn otherwise well-meaning organizations into quantity-, rather than quality-, driven orgranization. For them, more students equals more revenue.

We’re different. Instead of relying solely on tuition fees, a significant proportion of our funding comes from hiring companies that pay CI when they convert their interns to graduates withing three years of hosting them in a program. So, for us, better outcomes equals more revenue.

It’s a deliberate and important differentiator. It means our programs, and the educators and host companies we work with, are carefully designed and curated to maximize student experience and outcomes. With us, quality trumps quantity.

We’ve been providing career-enhancing, life-changing experience since 2011. And we vehemently advocate for global, experiential education to help combat the 21st century skills gap that leaves too many bright graduates under-utilized and under-employed.

Beyond offering a great experience, any investment in your education and early-career should provide a quantifiable return.

On average, CI alumni get hired 3X more quickly and earn 30% more than their peers a year after completing university.
