The Internship Program is designed to provide a quality experience for AUPP students. This manual provides structure and guidance for internship planning and completion. Through internships, students gain on-the-job experiences and opportunities to apply knowledge, skills, and professional behaviors attained through their academic program. Additionally, internships enhance student development and professional growth while widening students’ understanding regarding the world of work and career options. Some internships are very competitive and students should be prepared to interview for internship positions.

“The best part’s the feeling that I’m part of the whole team. One, I got a seat in the office, you know where you sit back to back and head to head with other colleagues, and it feels GREAT. I only see workers sitting like that in the movies, and when I get to sit like that in real life I feel more productive and energetic! Two, I expect being an intern to be more passive and learning from the sidelines, but I’m directly involved in some of the most important aspect of the law firm! That’s awesome!”    –  Yuttarach Chan

“I would use one word to describe this internship experience: ‘fantastic’. I got to explore a lot of staffs ranging from non-governmental to governmental works, and got to use my academic knowledge. For this work, I have to thank the international relation course I took with Dr. Frame. Because of this course, I was able to do research from perspectives of both realists and liberals.”   –  Limeng Ong
