The UNDP Seoul Policy Centre (USPC) for Global Development Partnerships, established in 2011, represents UNDP in Korea, works with Korea on international issues, and shares Korea’s development experiences with other countries. The Centre’s work is organized under four headlines: 1) Global Development Issues, 2) Development Solutions Partnerships, 3) Policy Analysis, and 4) Communications and Outreach.
USPC offers a small group of outstanding final year undergraduate, and graduate students, the opportunity to acquire direct exposure to UNDP’s work and gain technical knowledge and experience in international development and multilateral cooperation.
For more information on USPC’s work, please visit the website: http://www.undp.org/uspc
Objectives and Benefits:
An internship with USPC will offer students the opportunity to:
Duties and Responsibilities
Under the guidance of professional staff, interns will support the Centre’s work in the following main areas of work, as appropriate to their backgrounds and interests:
Under these three pillars, specific tasks may include:
The preferred duration of the internship is six months. (The internship can be extended up to 9 months if the intern can demonstrate it will grant him/her an educational credit for a course.) The number of working hours per week will be agreed before the internship begins. It is desired that the intern will work at least 25-30 hours per week during usual business hours. If that is not possible due to coursework or other outstanding commitments, other work arrangements will be determined based on mutual agreement between the supervisor and intern. The intern will work in the USPC office where work space and an email address will be provided.
Required Skills and Experience
Interns are not financially remunerated by UNDP. The costs associated with the internship must be borne by the nominating institution, related institution or government, which may provide the required financial assistance to its students; or by the student, who will have to obtain financing for subsistence and make his/her own arrangements for travel, accommodation, etc.
The purpose of the Internship Program is to complement an intern’s studies. Therefore, there should be no expectation of employment at the end of an internship. However, a number of interns, having completed their studies and met the necessary requirements, have gone on to further assignments with the UNDP or elsewhere in the United Nations system.
UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
NOTE: If selected for the position, interns are requested to provide a letter from university confirming current enrollment and graduation date, a copy of school transcript, a letter of endorsement from professor, a medical certificate of good health, a copy of medical insurance coverage during internship assignment in Thailand, and a copy of passport.
UNDP is committed to achieving workforce diversity in terms of gender, nationality and culture. Individuals from minority groups, indigenous groups and persons with disabilities are equally encouraged to apply. All applications will be treated with the strictest confidence.
