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?

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.

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. 

The program that we offer is not just a professional internship within the organization. This is a complex study program where you will develop your professional skills and knowledge in a particular field while working on a project within the company.

“All-in-price” package!

The accommodation in Amsterdam is indeed expensive. In fact, Amsterdam is one of the most expensive cities in Europe and unfortunately it is nearly impossible to find cheap accommodation here.

If you want to come for the Professional Internship program and not necessarily stay in Amsterdam, we can offer you “All-in price” package for € 2500. The fee includes:

  • 3 months of internship within the Netherlands Education Group
  • Consultation on career development and mentorship during your stay
  • Analysis of your CV and recommendations on finding a suitable job
  • Accommodation for 3 months (might be provided in another city or in Amsterdam – depending on the availability at the moment of your arrival)

Within this option, we can’t guarantee you the accommodation in Amsterdam (it can be another city). But don’t forget that the Netherlands is a very small country and wherever you stay, you will not spend more than 1–2 hours on the road to your desired destination.

If you are interested in this option, 100% pre-payment must be provided.

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.
