POLIS 3107 - International Studies Internship

North Terrace Campus - Semester 1 - 2017

The Internship allows students to work with a variety of organisations and NGOs concerned with International Affairs. The attachment to these will in some cases include working with them at their offices, but the majority will be project-based. Included will be some `virtual? internships and attachment with organisations in Europe, Asia and the Americas (including Human Rights bodies, international think-tanks, international affairs organisations, NGOs in the humanitarian area). These will be on the basis of students finalising a project with the organisations concerned, and then maintaining contact via Skype and e-mail. A local supervisor will be in place as a contact point and adviser on the project. In addition to the project itself, there will also be some face-to-face seminars on cognate areas of international affairs, report-writing and how to conduct negotiations in the international sphere. Prospective students in the course should be enrolled in the International Studies degree, or have very strong results in courses dealing with international affairs. A minimum of a credit average GPA will be required. For the purposes of entry, application forms will be made available at the end of the year preceding entry, and these should be submitted by 20 November. The internship will be run in First Semester each year. Successful applicants will hear by 15 December, and be able to enrol in the programme at the normal time.
