Local internships give students an opportunity to better understand Swedish professional culture while building their networks and resumes. We offer several excellent internship opportunities every semester and occasionally offer additional internships when available.

Internship requests are submitted during registration and should include your resume and a brief statement of interest for the desired internship. Your application materials are forwarded directly to the internship provider for their review, and some require an in-person interview upon arrival in Stockholm.
