The IOM Internship Programme provides students with the opportunity to learn about IOM's activities, to acquire initial work experience, and/or gain knowledge on a broad range of technical migration-related areas and disciplines.  As part of the Internship Programme, IOM provides on-the-job training to interns to support their professional development.

Interns are placed under the guidance of a supervisor, and given assignments and responsibilities commensurate with their academic and professional experience.

The Internship Programme builds links between academic institutions, universities, and IOM.


Intern applicants must, at the time of application, meet one of the following requirements:

  1. Be enrolled in the final academic year of a university degree programme (minimum Bachelor’s level or equivalent); or
  2. Be enrolled in a graduate degree programme (second university degree or equivalent, or higher); or
  3. Have graduated with a university or graduate degree and, if selected, must commence the internship within one-year of graduation.

All interns must be between 20 and 36 years of age. Furthermore, intern applicants should have a working knowledge (both oral and written) of English as one of IOM’s official languages.

Duration of Internship

The duration of an internship is from two to six months, renewable upon agreement of both the supervisor and the intern, up to a maximum of nine months.

Stipend for Internship

While the majority of interns receive a monthly subsistence allowance (MSA), which is a monetary stipend to partially cover accommodation and living expenses, there are a few exceptions when an intern is provided with funding/scholarship through their university, government or other institution for the internship programme.  MSA is calculated with reference to type of education and the distance of residence to the place of assignment at the time of appointment.

Job opportunities following completion of the Internship

As part of the IOM Internship Programme, the supervisor evaluates interns, who may be considered for future external vacancies and/or short-term assignments through IOM’s usual recruitment procedures.  In general, interns are considered external candidates and can apply for vacancies that are open to external candidates during and after their assignment.
