Do you want to obtain international experience and spend 3 months in one of the most amazing cities in the world – Amsterdam? Then we invite you for a 3-month professional internship within the company in Amsterdam! During this period, you will be working in your professional area and getting new experience.

Professional Internship in Amsterdam is a great boost for your career! You will learn how processes of your professional sphere are going here, get new knowledge and skills and gain international experience that is essential in the modern labour market.

And of course, you will access a multinational network! Do you know that more than 70% of the jobs in the Netherlands are found via networks?

Step 2
Based on your application we start looking for a placement for you. Mostly we search for companies in Amsterdam.

Step 3
We find a company able to host you. It can be a large international company or a small NGO, a public body, or a private entity. Types of companies are very different and depend a lot on your background.

Stage 4
When the company is found, mostly you attend a video call to discuss the opportunities. When everything is agreed we start legal procedures.

Stage 5
We send you a visa invitation (if needed) and then you can arrange your trip to the Netherlands. Upon your arrival, we meet you in the city of destination, provide accommodation, registration, and settle other formalities.

Requirements

There are no restrictions depending on age, nationality, or other criteria. Everyone is welcome to apply! However, it is true that if you have a strong profile with higher education and good experience – more companies will be interested to invite you for the internship. If your profile is more modest – the choice of companies might be not too big. Though, we are sure a candidate with any background can find an interesting internship in the Netherlands!

What is the difference between Professional Internship at Stichting Libertas International (The Netherlands Education Group) and another organization?

Stichting Libertas International is our organization. It is an educational institution and an NGO. We organize study programs and other projects for people from different countries. We have various directions of work and we can offer diverse opportunities for the internship. You can do an internship with us in the field of marketing, communication, and other areas. We can also offer internships in areas not directly linked to study programs, for example, consulting, legal, etc. You can check our courses page to see what we do and get an idea of what we could offer for an internship. You can work within any of the areas where we are working or in related cross-topic areas. However, if you are interested in the internship in another specific field – for example, engineering, fashion, construction, or some other area where we do not work – we can offer you an internship in another organization. Also if you want to do an internship in the area where we work but for some reason prefer another organization for the internship – we can arrange that for you. You can tell us in which area you would like to have the internship, what are your expectations – and we will find the relevant organization. So if you choose the internship in another organization – we will find another organization in accordance with your preferences where you could conduct your internship. 

Accommodation costs are not included in the fee. Accommodation can be provided upon request. The fee for the accommodation – € 800 per month (shared accommodation).

If you choose an internship in another organization we will offer you an internship in an organization based on your background. It could be that the organization will be in Amsterdam but it also might be that the organization will be in one of the other cities. In that case, the internship will be offered not in Amsterdam but in another city where the organization is based.

Please note the internship will be unpaid. That means you will not receive any financial benefits for your work. However, if you show good performance there is a high chance that you will find a well-paid job right after the internship.
