The UNIDO Internship Programme has been established for students from diverse academic backgrounds. Its purpose is to promote a better understanding of the Organization’s goals and objectives and, at the same time, to afford interns with an insight on how attempts are made to solve problems confronting developing economies in the area of industrialization.

Interns will receive practical experience on the work of UNIDO, or be able to conduct research on items of direct relevance to UNIDO’s programme of work. An internship lasts at least 3 to 6 months and can be extended up to 9 months. Applications should be submitted no earlier than 6 months and no later than 3 months before the start of the intended period. Applications without a valid undergraduate university diploma as well as certificate of enrollment in an advanced degree programme (second-level university degree or higher) will not be considered.
