The UNOG Internship Programme is intended for students enrolled in a degree programme in a graduate school (second university degree or higher) or for students having successfully completed at least four years of full-time study towards the completion of a degree at a university or equivalent institution in countries where higher education is not divided into undergraduate and graduate levels.
Internships are intended to promote a better understanding of international problems among participants and to provide them with an insight into the work of the United Nations. Interns are not paid. The acquisition of the necessary visas, travel costs and arrangements and living accommodation are the responsibility of the interns or their sponsoring institutions.
Successful candidates should be able to provide proof of enrolment in a Medical Insurance valid in Switzerland, as well as a Medical Certificate stating that the student is in a good health.
Interested students can apply to the specific internship announcements through the UN Careers portal at: http://careers.un.org, and follow the instructions in the Internship Applicant’s Manual.
