Welcome to the UNIC Pretoria Internship Programme

The United Nations Information Centre in Pretoria provides opportunities for university-level students to undertake internships. Students can utilize and enhance their educational experience through practical work assignments, while supporting the work of UN Information Centre. An internship with UNIC provides exposure to the daily activities undertaken by the office, as well as an opportunity to gain first-hand experience on a diverse range of topics and issues comprising the work of the United Nations.

Interns get involved, inter alia, in assisting with media monitoring, drafting press reviews, reports and media analyses, preparing speeches on particular UN-related topics, researching background information in response to queries and providing substantive assistance in the dissemination of information and other logistical support to the centre, including assisting the UNIC librarian. Much of the work is ‘reactive’ and can include a very diverse range of responsibilities outside the specific terms of reference.
