It also combines the beauty of both the ultra-modern and the classic – from the glass Pyramid of Musée du Louvre to the medieval styles of the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris. It’s the city of love. It’s one of the most filmed places in the world. It’s home to many company headquarters, and it’s geographically located in the center of Europe!

Are these internships paid?

Generally, no.

Work-based learning is regarded as an educational opportunity, and more often than not visa specifications require that international 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?

You must have turned 18 by the program start date.
