What is the difference between an externship and an internship?

The difference between an externship and an internship is that an externship is typically an unpaid shadowing of a respected industry professional during which the extern will observe daily duties, while an internship is a paid or voluntary position with an organization for someone who is learning a profession and industry, typically spanning over a few months. Externships are typically shorter than an internship, ranging from a day to about eight weeks, which is why many students choose to do an externship during winter break or spring break.) It’s just for learning so you could play around it.

Internships and externships at UCF offer training to work in similar capacities. UCF offers internship and externship opportunities to youth, students and professionals to learn and practice the desired skills for their career.
