Welcome to NICE Support Programme Internships and volunteering services in South America
As a German-Argentine Foundation, NICE offers up to 50 internships and volunteer services in Argentina without any mediation fee. This support programme comprises two parts and is aimed at students & graduates (student programme) or at pupils & school leavers (school programme).
Here, you can find a short presentation of the student programme as well as the school program. Futhermore, we present you some examples of internships and volunteer services of the programme. And as soon as you decide to apply, just download all forms at the “Application documents” section!
Both, enrolled students and graduates (Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes), can participate in the NICE support programme. It is open to all nationalities as well as all ages (from 18 years). Furthermore, NICE does not differentiate between mandatory and voluntary internships.
Most Argentine companies prefer interns that have gained first professional knowledge from academic studies or prior vocational experience.. However, there are also numerous positions which can be approached without prior knowledge.
The support programme is open to all, regardless of the candidates’ Spanish skills. Candidates with little or no previous Spanish skills can prepare themselves adequately for their internship with a NICE intensive language course on site.
In principle, mandatory internships can also be completed within this support programme. However, it must be examined on a case-by-case basis how specific the university requirements for the internship are.
You can complete your project abroad in the following areas: marketing & communication, healthcare, child & youth work, arts & culture, equality & human rights, tourism, tutoring & recreation, environmental protection, community work, commercial department and environmental protection.
Neither for an internship nor for a volunteer service prior professional knowledge is required. Important is openness towards the South American culture, willingness to learn, enthusiasm and reliability.
Anyone can participate, whether you already have Spanish skills or not. If necessary, you can learn the language with a NICE intensive course directly before the internship or volunteering in Argentina.
If you want to start a project in 2017, you can apply now. A lead time of 4-5 months is ideal, but if you are late, we also accept short-term applications (at the latest 2 months before the start of the project).
