During the application process you can provide your location preference, however your host city/town in Australia is usually determined by the best location for your internship placement. Most placements are located in Sydney, Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne or Newcastle.
TEAN has partnered with Elmhurst College, located in suburban Chicago, to offer a U.S. transcript and award 6 upper division internship academic credits for TEAN’s 8-week summer internship programs. Credit awarded will be based on the successful completion of learning goals and objectives (set with a supervisor), weekly reflections, employer evaluations and an activity report. Interns will be enrolled at Elmhurst as visiting students and will be in contact with an Elmhurst faculty member for all assignments.
The additional cost for academic credit is $350 total, and includes a transcript with an A – F letter grade from Elmhurst College. Elmhurst College is accredited by the Department of Education of the State of Illinois, as well as The Higher Learning Commission, A Member of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

Home University Credit
Participants may be able to arrange academic credit for the internship placement directly through their home university by speaking with their academic department and the study abroad office. At the time of application to the program, students choosing this option will need to provide TEAN with the details of the credit and any special requirements as it relates to the internship placement. Students are responsible for paying their home university for any tuition or fees associated with the credit.
TEAN encourages participants to discuss the academic credit options with their home university early in the application process. Academic credit for internships must be approved and arranged before the internship begins, as credit typically cannot be retroactively arranged.
TEAN interns are guaranteed housing in secure, fully-furnished apartments in the host city. Apartments are centrally located within walking distance of public transport.
