About Program

This Internship Program consists of 2 phases: minimum 4 weeks of Standard Portuguese language followed by the internship placement.

The Internship Period:

Professional practice internships are offered in private sector companies, governmental organizations, NGO's, schools, colleges, and universities. The work period may start from 2 months and run up to 12 months.

Company Assignment:

The language skill is an important factor. The more limited the student's language abilities, the flexible s/he will have to be in terms of placements. We try very hard to match the students' educational background, professional experience, and professional plans, to the internship placement. We contact the student (by e-mail or in person) with one or more possibilities, and descriptions of those internships, and ask the student for comments and to rank the possibilities in order of preference. This helps us ensure appropriate placement.

CFHI Accra Ghana

Our program was centered on understanding the many social determinants of health that are in place in Accra, Ghana. We worked primarily out of the Princess Marie Louise Children's hospital in Accra, working with the various departments to understand the types of patients that they normally see and with what conditions they normally arrive. The doctors and staff at the hospital were very helpful in helping me gain understanding of the types of disease burden the hospital normally sees, which is much different than what you would see working in a U.S. hospital. The program also allowed us to visit and learn from the many public health offices of the government, as well as USAID and the WHO.

This experience really opened my eyes to what was possible in a global health field and inspired me to continue working towards a career in global health. It also allowed me to learn about the people and culture of Ghana, which was really enlightening as well. I would highly recommend the program to anyone who wants to learn more about social determinants and global health!

UNI-Prep Institute 120Hr Certification

İ was very happy with the program. The readings were detailed and concise. İ took the 120hr certification. İ enjoyed being able to have the freedom of working when İ could and İ feel confident that İ now have the tools to teach English abroad. İ highly recommend UNI-Prep İnstitute!

Note: This is an online TEFL certification program. There is no housing provided or anything like that. I plan on teaching English in the middle east and İ can't wait to get started! Thanks to UNİ-PREP!
