Welcome to our NICE Support Program
Internships and voluntary services  in South America

As a German-Argentine Foundation, NICE offers up to 50 free internships abroad and volunteer services in Argentina. This support program 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 program as well as the school program. Furthermore, we present you some examples of free internships abroad and volunteer services of the program.
As soon as you decide to apply, just download all forms in the “Application documents” section!

Student program

Internships are possible in tourism, marketing, logistics, languages, social work, business administration, arts & culture, pedagogy, communication or event management.

Both, enrolled students and graduates (Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes), can participate in the NICE support programme. It is open to all nationalities and ages (from 18 years). Furthermore, NICE does not differentiate between mandatory and voluntary internships.

In general, a start is possible all year round. Some internships exclude January as a starting period.

Depending on the internship company, a minimum duration of two months is required. The maximum internship duration is eight months.

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 program 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 program. However, it must be examined on a case-by-case basis how specific the university requirements for the internship are.

We are currently accepting applications for the year 2018/19. Your application should ideally be submitted 4-5 months before the start of your internship, and at the latest 2 months in advance.

Here, you can download the Application Form Student Program and the CV Form. As soon as you have filled them out, you can send them together with a photo of yourself to info@nice-network.org. If you already have some Spanish skills, you can also attach our Spanish Test and we will evaluate your level.

School program

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.
Both, pupils and high school graduates, can apply for the NICE support program, regardless of nationality and from the age of 17.
Most projects can be started all year round. There are, however, some internship companies and several NGOs, that do not offer a project start in January, the Argentine holiday month.
Internships can be completed over a minimum period of 8 weeks, while voluntary services are possible from 4 weeks. The maximum duration of your internship or voluntary service is six months.
Neither for an internship nor for a voluntary 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 2018/19, 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).
Here, you can download the Application Form School Program and the CV Form School Leavers. As soon as you have filled them out, you can send them together with a photo of yourself to info@nice-network.org. If you already know some Spanish, you can also fill in the Spanish Test and we will give you an estimation on your level.
