So, internships cost money? Yes... As mentioned earlier, these internships abroad have their costs and do vary. This range of prices is definitely determined by where you go, the program length, and how you live. For instance, your cost of living in central Paris is going to be way more than the cost of living in Brazil. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t go for that dream internship in Paris, but that you should prepare yourself to pay those costs. A cost of living refers to the costs you have to pay for everyday things. Think food, transportation, and housing. These internship costs, depending on their inclusion or exclusion from your chosen program, play a big role in your costs.
