The Human Resources (HR) Office in Helsinki administers the Foreign National Student Internship Program. The main purpose of the program is to provide students with the opportunity and challenge of working in a foreign affairs arena while profiting from the expertise of experienced employees. Interns may earn academic credit from their educational institutions. Their supervisors serve as mentors, providing feedback as necessary to the intern and to the academic institution.

There are no benefits, financial or other, attached to the Foreign National Student Internship Program (i.e. compensation, leave, future employment rights etc.).

Available internship positions will be announced on this page.
