The WTO Secretariat maintains a limited internship programme for post-graduate university students wishing to gain practical experience and deeper knowledge of the multilateral trading system. Only a limited number of such internship posts is available.
As part of the internship programme, we also offer the WTO Accessions Internship Programme (http://www.wto.org/english/thewto_e/acc_e/acc_internship_e.htm), sponsored by the Government of China, within the framework of the MOU on the "China's LDCs and Accessions Programme" established in July 2011. Four internship positions are available on an annual basis under this Programme.
Interested candidates should follow the procedures and conform to the eligibility criteria set out below.
Intake to the programme is on a continuing basis, with no specific recruitment period. There is no opening or closing date for applications.
Duration: Up to 24 weeks.
