Internships at UWS

Internships offer a small group of outstanding graduate-level students the opportunity to acquire direct exposure to UWS’s work. They are designed to complement environmental and conservation oriented studies with practical experience in various aspects of multilateral technical cooperation.
Internships can take place in a UWS Secretariat or field offices. Assignments vary greatly in terms of content. Every attempt is made to match the interests of the intern with the needs of the organization. Internship assignments vary in length according to the availability and academic requirements of the intern, as well as the needs of UWS. Assignments are available on a part-time and full-time basis throughout the year

Qualifications

Interns are selected on a competitive basis. The following minimum qualifications are required: Enrolment in a graduate-level degree programme in a Conservation related field such as tourism, conservation, natural resource management, forestry, or environmental studies.
Language skills: written and spoken proficiency in at least one, and preferably two of the three working languages used by UWS, an interest in conservation initiatives, a desire to work with and gain the confidence and respect of people with different originalities, national and cultural backgrounds.
Note:

UWS does not pay for internships. The costs associated with the latter must be borne by the nominating institution, related institution or government, which may provide the required financial assistance to its students; or by the student, who will have to obtain financing for subsistence and make his or her own arrangements for travel, accommodation etc.

Internship at UWS is for the capacity benefits of its student members.
