The Libra Group will then ascertain if, based on your application package, you are eligible for an interview.  For more information on the application process, please review the frequently asked questions.

Purchase Health Coverage (show)

A basic Libra Group requirement is to have International Health Insurance (IHI). You can either extend your family insurance plan or decide to purchase individual insurance, be it private or public health coverage. In either case, you must confirm your coverage extends to the location you will be interning. Be sure to look into this early on as it can take a few months to settle this requirement. Here is a link to some suggestions about purchasing IHI.

Obtain your passport (show)

If you don’t already have one, you need to obtain a passport. Greek students should visit the Hellenic National Passport Center website for more information about obtaining a passport: http://www.passport.gov.gr. If you have a passport, please ensure it is valid for at least 6 months after the end of your internship.

Apply for an intern visa (show)

Once selected for the program, come by the office and we will help you with your visa options. You will work closely with the Libra Group to have your visa issued. Libra will contact you regarding the visa process approximately 2-3 months prior to the semester you are planning to intern.

Don’t forget before you go (show)
