About the IIA Internship
The IIA Internship is a professional work placement program designed to provide you with practical work experience in an industry related to your field of study. Placements are arranged specific to your individual needs. Our online application form gives you the choice of industry, location, start date, duration and more. The position you will be offered is generally unpaid and suitable for you if you are currently studying at university (or recently graduated) and are looking to compliment your theoretical knowledge with relevant practical work experience.
Guaranteed Internship Offer

Certificate Upon Completion

Generally 4-12 weeks, however this may vary depending on your requirements and the number of days you decide to do your internship per week.
Paid internships are dependent on host organisation availability. Although paid placements are sometimes available, the IIA internship is generally unpaid.

“The internship helped me a lot during my studies. I could practice things I learned at university and also what to expect when I start working after studies. My supervisor taught me a lot and also made contacts for when I apply for a job next year :)”
