Internship Program in European Union

If you would like to get a taster of a career with the EU institutions, why not apply for a traineeship?

Each year, around 1,900 young people are offered the chance to increase their professional skills, develop their personal qualities, and enhance their EU knowledge through the EU trainee programmes. Most of the EU institutions organise traineeships for young university graduates, each lasting usually between 3 and 5 months.

Traineeships are available in a wide range of fields and offer a great insight into the work of the EU. The content of the job largely depends on the service you are assigned to. Opportunities are available in the fields of competition law, human resources, environmental policy, communication and many more.

The selection procedures for traineeships are run individually by the EU institutions and agencies themselves. You can see below some of the opportunities available. Please note that maybe not all available opportunities are displayed on this site.
