Advising Info

Virtual Global Internship*: Students complete an online internship with an internationally based placement (for credit, not for pay) that is usually accompanied by an “Internship Course” at part-time or full-time status. The course may include discussions on work-place differences and provide check-in opportunities with onsite professionals on projects to support your international work experience.

*Internship approval: Students need approval from a WWU faculty advisor who will determine how the internship will be evaluated.

Learn more about virtual options.

After you decide on a program and the courses you will take abroad, you must complete the Departmental Academic Advising Esign Form with your advisor before your program commences.  

Review Your Degree Works 

Web4U > Student > Student Records > Degree Works. Follow steps to see what you have completed, and what you still need for your degree plan. At least 50% of the credit hours required for the major/minor must be earned at Western.  

An official transcript from your program must be sent to Education Abroad for processing upon completion of your program
