Program Description:
Program Description:
 
 
Expect an experience rich with history, vibrant food, and diverse entertainment in Ho Chi Minh City, a place that has become one of Vietnam's key cultural, trading, and education hubs. Modern Vietnam is an experience of dizzying contrasts, delicious street food, temples and war memorials, and people from all over the world. Interns will join the fast-paced workforce and acclimate to Vietnamese working culture: rise early, grab coffee and some breakfast on the way to work, take a break at noon to nap, go out for dinner with colleagues or friends, and head to bed before midnight. This internship is a great way to show a potential employer you can think, work, and live outside of the more traditional countries, AND have a great time doing it.

Important Gustavus Credit Info

This summer internship info assumes choice of the 8-week model. Note that the full load in an 8-week CISabroad Internship is 2 Gustavus units.

Because enrolled Gustavus students will be seeking academic credit, there is an additional $800 charge (reflected in the budget sheet shown here) for internship course enrollment at Plymouth State University, the school of record for CISabroad internships.

Limit on Career-Related Credits in the Degree. Note that students are permitted to count a maximum of 4 course credits of career-related experiential education toward graduation requirements at Gustavus. (This experience counts as 2 credits on its own.) This maximum includes: Career Exploration (268), semester or summer Academic Internships (368), Orientation to Teaching (EDU-268), and Student Teaching (EDU-392, 394, 395, 396). Additional credits (beyond the maximum of four) can be taken as a course audit (standard tuition applies) but would not be counted toward graduation. Applying Academic Internship credit towards a major is determined by the academic department.

Housing Deposit. In addition to the costs shown in the budget, participants will pay a refundable $500 housing deposit. The deposit may be fully or partially refunded after departure depending on the state of the housing after students leave.
