While working in Milan, you’ll also enroll in a required 3-credit internship seminar with other IES interns, where you’ll gain context for your internship placement by examining cultural issues in and out of the workplace.
Topics covered include understanding workplace culture, improving communication, developing soft skills like flexibility and problem-solving, and navigating issues, challenges, and opportunities so you can succeed on the job in Milan and when you return home.
Survival Italian Language Course
In your first few weeks in Milan, you'll have the opportunity to participate in a Survival Italian Language course in order to learn some basic Italian that will help you navigate the city and your workplace. This 15-hour Survival Italian Language course will be optional and does not carry any credit.
NOTE: This is a list of planned course offerings. After you are accepted, you will see a list of final course offerings in your account. Additionally, SAF and IES Abroad reserve the right to cancel a course due to insufficient enrollment or circumstances beyond our control.
