Program Details

The J-1 student intern exchange visitor program at OU is designed for graduate or undergraduate students who are currently pursuing a degree program outside the US, and who wish to participate in an internship opportunity in the US that fulfills an educational objective of their degree program. This is a work-based educational opportunity that will reinforce the intern’s academic program. 

As an intern, you would have the opportunity to build partnerships with OU faculty, staff, and students and learn from their methods and varying areas of expertise. You will also be immersed in the culture and life at OU, practicing English skills as well as experiencing life at an American university.
