    Hey guys,

    I've often heard of many students/people gaining internships at the UN or other organisations. I've been trying to find some for a few weeks now and I can't find any information or roles. I am a first year undergrad.

    If anyone has any experience with this or recommends anything, please share!

    Thank you

    Brand name internships aren't really common for first years I'm afraid, maybe do something a bit more low key this year? Like, call around some of the think tanks in London to see if they'd take you on?

    I've also heard horror stories of interns at the UN not getting paid, so bear that in mind too.

    Many UN internships require you to be in the middle of completing a Masters degree.

    Usually they are unpaid also.

    I know someone who interned at the UN, but she had graduated.
