A Guide to Statistics Internships Abroad

If you’ve always been fascinated by numbers, then you are in the right place to start on your bright future, with a statistics internship abroad. The beauty of statistics is that it is not just about math and crunching numbers; it is a huge field concerned with asking scientific questions and working with other people from other fields of study such as science, business, engineering, healthcare, and even sports. Statistics is an indispensable tool in the “age of planning”, and governments all over the world are researching to improve their economic development. This is where you come in!

The benefits of statistic internships abroad

Besides the fact that you’re traveling the world and discovering new countries, there are countless personal and professional benefits you can gain through statistics internships abroad to set you up on the path to success. 

What makes these internships valuable abroad versus in your home country? Let’s just start with the obvious here—meaningful travel. You will not only be given the opportunity to travel to a different country, but you will also learn how to integrate, adapt and immerse yourself in a new culture. Statistics is all about understanding the world around you, and what better way to do that than by getting out there?!

Professional benefits you can gain. While an internship in your country is very valuable, an internship abroad could open up many more doors for your personal development and your future career. The demand for international experience has grown considerably, and the skills and knowledge you will acquire through an internship abroad (along with some international networking) will definitely make your resume shine.

A day on the job. Although your work will probably be conducted in English, you will most likely hear some Guten Morgen or Konichiwa here and there, and that will be your first lesson in learning a new language. If you keep up with it and practice, by the time your internship is over you could be fluent, and you’ve gained another skill!

No matter where you end up interning, a day on the job as a statistician will pretty much be about collecting data, analyzing it, and offering solutions. You could be working in agriculture, understanding how the world of food works, or you could be working for a big game company, researching user behavior data, or you could use your statistical skills in sports, and figure out what players should be traded based on your data. The limit does not exist with international statistics internships!

GoAbroad’s Inside Scoop for Interns in the statistics field abroad

The reason a lot of people think they don’t understand statistics is because what they mostly learn in school is more theory than practice. Doing a statistics internship abroad is the perfect opportunity to gain firsthand experience on how the abroad world works. Companies are always searching for interesting and international experience, and you might get invited to an interview for a job you haven’t even applied for, just because you did an internship abroad.

The new environment and the working system and culture might make you feel intimidated at first, but it will get easier in time. Ask questions if something is unclear and always double check your work before handing it in. Numbers can be tricky, but you already know that.

Attend all the company events! Expand your comfort zone of working with just your colleagues and get better at interacting with other people and networking. Oh, and if someone asks for your number, give them an estimate.

Statistics is considered as one of the most interesting and absorbing professions amongst today’s generation. It is not only used in big economical and medical research, but in pretty much every field. Internships in statistics abroad can be both fun and rewarding, so why not give it a shot?
