A semester unlike any other

Intern. Study. Travel.

Earn Credits. Travel Abroad. Intern with an organization making a tangible impact in its field.

We understand that an education for students needs to lead towards a viable career. Our University programs earn credits for your academic standing, and our internships provide a valuable and unique addition to your resume.

Spend 3 months abroad, immersed in a new culture with a cohort of like-minded students. Credits are earned through a local University with courses taught by tenured professors. Internships are run by local organizations running long-term initiatives. Accommodations are fully organized by Insight with all students living in a safe, vetted location.


The Semester in Development made me really stand out to potential employers and  I was able to get a job with the company of my dreams soon after returning home. My fear that I wouldn’t find a job after graduating no longer existed at the end of the program. I made life long memories with a group of people who have become life long friends. In the last year since coming home, I’ve done so many things that I would never have even tried before. After the Semester In Development, I feel like I have no limits!”
