Study Abroad Opportunities

Interns at Salisbury University have an opportunity to teach in some of the most prestigious schools in the world. Each placement has unique feature and provide methods candidates and interns with an enriching, life-changing educational opportunity. No one is better than another; each one offers the top of the line instruction using the most effective teaching strategies.

 

Internships in Auckland, New Zealand:
In both the fall and spring semesters, interns will be able to intern in schools in Auckland, NZ. Summer internships are also available, but the 100 days required in MD still applies;  the remaining time of the internship will be completed  in MD schools either before or after the summer experience. One of the many strengths of the NZ schools is their focus and successes in literacy. The homestay with a host family during the internship will provide meals and transportation throughout the duration of the stay.


 

Internships in Beijing, China:
Each spring 4 or 5 of our SU interns will be able to intern at the international school in Beijing, China. This English-speaking school hosts children from 54 countries and is one of the top 10 International Baccalaureate Schools (IBO) in the world. Inquiry learning is the main mode of teaching. The teachers in the school will help interns learn how to navigate in Beijing and show them many of the amazing historical sites. Interns will share an apartment near the school.
