The Faculty of Humanities does not have many internships positions abroad. Sometimes you will find Internship Vacancies on offer for Humanities students. Keep in mind that you will have to find an internship position yourself. Nevertheless, students have found trainee positions in many places: with the United Nations in New York, with Dutch embassies abroad, with a NGO in Central Asia, with companies in Swiss and Italy etc.
On the general student website you can find information on other issues you should bear in mind when doing an international internship, such as financing, visa and permits, insurance etc.
Please note! If you want to have an internship position abroad, start collecting information as early as possible. At least one year in advance. Applying for visa and residence permits (for instance for Canada, Australia or the United States) may take a while. An early start is therefore worth the trouble.
