Internship information 

Internships with UNHCR Ireland are advertised twice yearly for both the External Relations Unit and the Protection Unit. Their duration is normally six months, with most interns expected to work on a project which will benefit both them and UNHCR in fields such as refugee protection (legal), international relations, administration and public affairs.

Applications for internships with UNHCR Ireland can be submitted directly to the office on foot of an advertisement.
