The European Investment Bank offers a limited number of Internships to university students and graduates, with less than one year of professional experience (since the last diploma), who wish to acquire an understanding of the Bank’s work or gain experience in the field of their studies. Internships normally last between one and five months (six months if requested by Universities), and cannot be extended beyond the maximum period. Most are based at the EIB’s headquarters in Luxembourg.
The Internship Programme is open only to students who are nationals of the EU Member States and the Candidate Countries (Albania, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia and Turkey).
If you wish to apply for an Internship at the EIB, please view Current Vacancies in the EIB web site and respond to one of the published opportunities by submitting your application on-line. Three intakes are organised throghout the year (1st February, 1st July and 1st October). Positions are generally published between two and three months before the start day.
Our interns will gain:
- an overview of the EIB’s objectives and the problems arising in achieving them,
- practical knowledge in the field of their studies
- a first professional and personal experience in a dynamic EU body through contacts established in the course of their everyday work
Interns receive a flat-rate monthly allowance, provided they are not entitled to similar compensation from another source. We also reimburse one round trip from the country of origin or residence to the place of the internship.
Interns must cover their own accommodation costs.
