The different main fields of study leave room for internship opportunities at different times within the programme. Students who pick Social Anthropology as their main field will have an opening to do an internship in period A-C during the second semester. Students who pick Political Science as their main field of study will have the opportunity to do an internship during semester three, worth either 15, 22.5 or 30 credits (depending on whether 7.5 or 15 credits of thematic Political Science courses have been attained during the second semester). Students who pick Human Geography can do an internship either during the second or third semester.

Main field: Human Geography

Please turn to the Department of Human Geography for information about how to register for “KG7239 Work Experience in Human Geography” (15 ECTS).

Main field: Social Anthropology

Students who wish to do an internship period within the master’s programme can do so through the Department of Political Science. Students must then find a suitable trainee post by themselves. A precondition for approval of the trainee post from the department is that the post is relevant to the master’s education and that it provides an opportunity to write an internship report. An approved internship report is a precondition for having the education credits for the course “Professional Internship in Political Science” reported to Ladok. Internships should not be salaried.

Students who wish to do an internship must submit an internship agreement to the Department of Political Science before December 2. In cases when the student fails to get a signature from the employer before December 2 a notification about the planned trainee post should be submitted to the Department at that date.

Signature

Agreements that are signed by the student and the employer should be submitted to the Internship Coordinator (Pasquale Cricenti) in original for approval and signature. Only complete agreements that are correctly filled in will be approved. Either hand in the agreement in Pasquale Cricenti’s post box at F7 or send it to the following address:

Dr Pasquale Cricenti
Statsvetenskapliga institutionen
Stockholms universitet
106 91 Stockholm

Mark the envelope ”Internship”.

Registration, insurance and visa

The internship agreement is the basis for registration on the course “Professional Internship in Political Science”.

Students who will do an internship abroad will be insured through Student UT upon registration. If the trainee post is located in Europe it is important to bring both a student insurance card and Försäkringskassans sjukförsäkringskort (ordered at Försäkringskassan) to the internship.

For internship in Sweden the regular student insurance is effective – as in the case of other studies in Sweden.

Please note that internship abroad may require a visa in some countries. Students who plan to do their internship in another country are responsible for checking whether a visa is required in the country in question, and to acquire a visa in cases where this is required.
