Benefits of internships

Since 1990 the Department of Government has offered its students the opportunity to undertake a one term internship as an integrated part of the programme. Combining academic studies and practical work is very popular with both students and the organisations that offer the internships. Every year approximately 100 students undertake internships at embassies, international organisations, NGO's, interest groups, ministries, state departments, communications companies, think-tanks, research institutes and local authorities in Sweden as well as abroad.
