We welcome students from all over the world to apply for our internships. However, you must have unrestricted work authorization in the U.S. at the time of application.
If you are a student at a U.S. school on an F-1 visa and are able to obtain a CPT or OPT from your school for the length of the internship, this would qualify. You should check with your designated school official to find out more about this process and any other criteria your school may have.
For students studying at a college or university outside of the U.S., you need to have your own work authorization at the time you apply.
If you are selected to participate in an internship, it is imperative that you have all of your work authorization documents physically with you. Otherwise, you will not be able to begin your internship.
There is a separate team that supports the recruitment process for United Kingdom based internship. For students looking for an internship there, here is some general information:
- The program offers one year of work experience from June to June every year across all lines of business in the London-based head office. It is meant for those in a UK-based sandwich program, a four-year undergraduate course.
- Jobs are usually posted from October to December. Candidates are interviewed between January and March. Interns are hired between April and June with starting dates in June.
- All jobs are posted on the Disney Careers website and all candidates must apply online. The existing right to work in the United Kingdom is essential.
If you are a student based outside of the United States and are interested in US-based opportunities, another option is the Disney International Program. It offers a wide variety of opportunities for students from all over the world to work for Disney. More information and qualifications can be found at www.disneyinternationalprograms.com. To stay connected, we encourage you to sign up for email updates.
Another opportunity is aboard one of our cruise ships. Please visit www.disneycareers.com/Disney-cruise-line where you can contact a procurement ally in your region to help you apply for available opportunities.
As always, the main Disney Careers website is a great resource for positions around the world as well.
Best of luck to you!
