ONE- TO SIX-MONTH VOCATIONAL INTERNSHIP

With an internship of 1-6 months you will get to know Russia, Ukraine or Kyrgyzstan directly and from different sides. With a local company, an NGO or a public institution you will get a deeper impression of everyday life in the host country. Internships are possible in the following countries and towns:

  • Russia: Moscow, St. Petersburg, Petrozavodsk, Ulan-Ude
  • Ukraine: Uzhgorod
  • Kyrgyzstan: Bishkek, Ak-Suu

You usually live with a host family during your internship. You will live in a students’ residence in Moscow and Irkutsk.

Our partner organizations can organize engagements, for example, in the following spheres:  NGO, children’s home, tourism, national library, rehabilitation center for children, agriculture, handicrafts, zoo, radio and a lot more. We would be happy to advise you as your long-term engagement is taking shape.

Requirements:

What you need are initiative, tolerance and commitment in order to be able to make contact with other people and to adapt to the new circumstances. Professional experience is not required. We recommend  taking a language course to start with, if you do not yet speak Russian. This is often demanded. Language course and internship can wellbe combined. But you can also do the two in different towns – one after the other.
