We hope that this does not happen, but if it does, Interns cannot be required to be at work if they are sick. Usually, employers require notification of sickness and a letter from your doctor (usually) after the third day of sickness absence.
An internship abroad, is it safe?
Safety is an essential element in our programmes. We have selected stable places and companies to guarantee a great experience.
Also, in our process, we give orientation before the departure with an overview of safety issues that are important to the specific destination. In addition, we provide airport pick up and drop off to give a peace of mind to our students, a walking tour in the city centre to explain how the city works, a local office where we can meet and a local support to help them if they need an extra help.
If I have questions or problems when I am abroad, what should I do?
We know that when you arrive in a new country, you can have different questions, from how I can pay the bus to if I need a medical assistance, where should I go? And it is for this type of situations that we have a local support to help you with these issues. Besides, we always recommend the interns to engage in projects inside the company, and if they need a mentoring, our staff is ready to provide it. Giving book recommendations, articles, tools and processes that can help them to achieve a great result in their projects.

Furthermore, all interns are covered by working times rules, such as: entitlement to breaks during the working day, a limit on weekly working time, minimum weekly rest period.
When should I apply for the programme?
