CREES helps coordinate student interships in Russia and Eastern Europe. Information about the current offerings are listed on the Weiser Center for Europe and Eurasia (WCEE) Opportunities Abroad page.
Some students opt to pursue study abroad programs on their own that are not sponsored by U-M (see sample programs listed below). Courses taken on non-U-M programs may or may not count for credit or towards distribution or major requirements. Please consult with the LSA Academic Advising Center and your department advisor for advice on transfer credits before enrolling in these non-U-M programs.
Two useful resources for program options are:
- The CREES Jobs, Internships, & Fellowships Blog
- The International Center's Education Abroad Office (a clearinghouse for information on a broad range of education abroad options including study, internships, volunteering, etc.)
