INTERNSHIPS AT UNWTO

UNWTO may at times consider accepting Interns, depending on the student's qualifications and the demands of the work programme of the Organization.

Internship is on a voluntary basis. Consequently the Intern will not be entitled to any remuneration or allowance and will be responsible for any expenses incurred as a result of the Internship. Also, acceptance of an Intern carries no expectancy of employment at the end of the Internship period.

If the request is approved, an Agreement will be signed between the Organization and the candidate and, when applicable, the university or educational institution concerned.

Applicants will be requested to submit a medical certificate of good health and will be required to be in possession of an all-risk insurance.

OPEN INTERNSHIP APPLICATIONS

Candidates wishing to be considered for an Internship should complete the on-line UNWTO Internship Application Form. As a general rule, open internship applications are retained by UNWTO for a maximum period of one year from date of receipt.
