Beyond Academy offers an array of Technology and Software Engineering internship programs in major cities around the world, combining work and travel into one unforgettable adventure. Immerse yourself in another business culture and kickstart your career as you learn from the best. Alongside your work, you’ll have the chance to get to grips with a brand-new city!
Beyond Academy’s programs are tailored to your interests and desired career path, and you can choose from fourteen different locations. The technology industry is so much more than just coding and sitting in front of a computer. Software engineering is an important part of almost every business and there are so many opportunities to get involved. You might find yourself working with network architects, helping major corporations keep critical transactions moving or shadowing a cyber security specialist while they develop digital strategies for the client. Whether it’s software development or systems engineering, you’ll be working shoulder-to-shoulder with top professionals in your industry. You’ll leave your program with hard-earned insight into the workings of a typical firm, ready to hit the ground running as you embark on your new career.
As you work you’ll join your Beyond Community, a group of fellow interns all working in the city like you, on trips, events and community dinners. Your free time will be spent exploring every inch of your chosen city - whether it’s delicious food and drink, museums and cultural events, or simply getting to know the locals. And our Community Team on the ground will support you every step of the way, offering all the help, advice and assistance you need.
Please note: you must be 18 years or older on the start date of your program.
