* The length of the internship or thesis may vary, however—many students choose to take additional time for these components. 
** A special note: U.S. Federal regulations state that AUP students receiving federal loans cannot do their Internship or write up their thesis in the United States. Students can only complete an Internship in the United States when it is not in pursuit of their degree.
