Do I need to speak French?

No. English is the only language requirement for an Absolute Internship.

What companies do you partner with?

We work with both small and large companies with established internship programs. Unfortunately, we can’t provide a list of companies that we work with due to confidentiality reasons.

What type of accommodation do you have?

Joining one of our Montreal internships, you will reside in high quality student housing, centrally located in the heart of the city.

Are these internships paid?

Generally, no.

Work-based learning is regarded as an educational opportunity, and more often than not visa specifications require that Montreal internships be unpaid.

Nevertheless, in rare cases, interns can and do receive renumeration.

Our placement team will not make this a priority when searching for your internship and we therefore recommend that you assume your internship will be unpaid.

Do you provide flights?

Flights are not included in the price but we can help suggest flights for you in advance.

Can I get French lessons?

We will help organise group lessons for participants who want to learn French. This is not included in the price. Please speak to the Absolute Internship team before arrival in order to arrange your language lessons.

Is there a minimum age to attend Absolute Internship?

To be considered for one of Absolute Internship’s Montreal internships, you must have turned 18 by the program start date.
