A Guide to Mathematics Internships Abroad

Mathematics is a universal language spoken across the globe—so why not grab your passport and start talking? Mathematics internships abroad pose a great opportunity to discover your vocation while exploring the world, and with the in-demand skill set the discipline provides sought after in a huge range of industries, the biggest difficulty you face is choosing where to go!

The Benefits of Mathematics Internships Abroad

A mathematics internship abroad is the absolute best way to stand out to recruiters and graduate schools, particularly when vying for a role in extremely competitive STEM industries. In today’s international working world, it’s not uncommon for employers and research centers to pack off their best and brightest to offices and labs in far-flung locales for specific projects; so it’s beneficial to demonstrate you have the ability and willingness to rise to the challenges that come with living and working overseas.

Having the experience provided by international mathematics internships on your résumé will show your interest in, and commitment to, your chosen field—whatever that might be. If opportunities in your ideal industry are few and far between at home, jetting off to foreign climes can be the smart way to land relevant experience to open the door to further career progression down the line. Depending on the placement you choose, you could be building on your specific expertise by undertaking theoretical research projects or applying your mathematical skills to related domains such as data science, investment banking, or teaching. You could be working for a multinational bank, aeronautics firm, boutique start-up, university research department, or educational charity. An international placement can give you the keys to access experiences that would otherwise be out of reach.

Test driving your classroom education in the real world will not only deepen your knowledge but allow you to discover and shape your passions, helping you to pursue a career you really love. You’ll have the chance to get feedback and advice from experienced professionals, as well as the opportunity to build a network of useful contacts who can assist you in developing your potential.

Most importantly, mathematics internships abroad combine intensive professional development with the awesome that is discovery of new cultures and a greater understanding of the world we live in. Don’t panic if you’re not fluent in several languages or unavailable over the summer; there are loads of placements for English-speakers (even in countries where it’s not the majority language). Many have flexible durations (from six weeks to 14 months) and flexible start dates too, so you can work your internship around your university work and other commitments. It’s easier than ever to intern abroad, so grab the chance now!

GoAbroad’s Inside Scoop for Interns in the Mathematics Field Abroad

Don’t assume, always check! Different roles, companies, and industries will be seeking different qualities in their interns, so make sure you’re choosing the right placement by ensuring the organization’s expectations of you align with what you want to gain from the experience. Carefully look into the program requirements, read international mathematics internships reviews, and speak to program alumni before applying. If you’re looking to get academic credit, check with your university that the placement meets the requirements of your course. Make time to sort out the important details including visa applications, travel vaccinations, and tweaking your résumé.

We’re not in Kansas anymore, Toto. The living situation could well be very different from what you’re used to, or even from what you’re expecting from a trip abroad. Accommodation, for instance, can range from homestays with local families, shared dorms with other interns, or your own room in an apartment. Even if you’ve had previous work experience, you may be surprised at the differences in working practices—so keep an open mind and keep learning from colleagues! Cost of living (e.g. food and commuting) may be different to your home country’s as well, so check out GoAbroad’s Intern Scholarships Directory to help you cover the costs of your trip. 

This is the ideal time for you to take the plunge and take advantage of the change to live and work abroad. It might seem difficult and scary but (must…resist…pi…puns…) it’s much easier than you think! Few good things are ever smooth sailing and learning to overcome the tough stuff now will prepare you for the rest of your life. Be clear in your goals and work through each challenge one at a time and you can succeed anywhere.

How many fantastic opportunities and experiences await you? The limit does not exist.
