|English term or phrase: internship [what verb to use?]|
|What verb goes with 'internship'? Do you 'do an internship', 'undertake an internship', 'follow an internship' or something else? Who can help?|
|to do an internship|
I don't think you can go wrong with 'do an internship'. This phrase is also used by a number of educational institutions in the UK.
Verbs such as undergo or follow indicate a rather passive involvement, whereas an internship usually requires a lot of active involvement in order to make it work.
The best way to do an internship in the U.S. is through enrolling in an academic program such as the Diploma Programs. The Diploma Programs can take about three months up to a year or longer to complete and allow you to do an internship upon successful completion. A good Diploma Program will also guarantee students an internship site and save them from the hassle of going through the entire search process themselves.
Who can do an internship?
The Internship Programme is open to Junior and Senior degree students of any discipline. Your GPA must equal or exceed 2.75 at the time of application, and you must have the prior approval of your Advisor.

Question 3. Does everyone do an internship during the summer vacation?
Answer. Research by the Association of Graduate Recruiters has shown that internships are the number one way in which organisations recruit graduate hires. We therefore "recruit" internships from employers to meet demand from participants, based on data we collect over the course of your first year on the programme. What we find is that not everyone wants to do an internship - in our first year, about half of participants are.
Q. Can I do an internship (e.g. in the House of Commons or in the British Museum) alongside my studies?
A. No. But you could consider staying in the UK over the summer vacation and working under the BUNAC 'Blue Card' scheme in some appropriate placement.

|I'm going with this one. I am inclined to agree with Ian that it's rather inelegant (in BrE at least), but on a global scale it seems to be the best - and easiest - option.|
