General internships

We offer a limited number of internships to university students and recent graduates who wish to acquire an understanding of the Bank’s work or gain experience in their field of studies. Internships normally last between three and five months (six months if requested by universities), and cannot be extended beyond the maximum period. Most are based at our headquarters in Luxembourg.

You will gain:

  • An overview of the EIB's objectives and the challenges arising in achieving them
  • A first professional and personal experience in a dynamic EU body through contacts established in the course of your everyday work
  • Practical knowledge in your field of studies

There are two intakes each year, on 1 February and 1 September. We generally publish opportunities between three and four months prior to the start date.

Eligibility to apply

The General Internship Programme is open only to students or recent graduates, with less than one year of relevant experience (since the last degree), who are nationals of EU Member States and Candidate Countries whose membership negotiations have started (currently: Turkey, Serbia and Montenegro).

You must have a degree or be in the final year of a course at an institute of higher education. Generally, successful candidates will have enrolled on a graduate study programme (be pursuing a master’s degree).

In addition, you must meet the following criteria:

  • demonstrated ability to conduct analytical work, exercise good judgment and work as part of a team
  • proficiency in English and/or French; knowledge of other EU languages would be an advantage

What we offer

We pay a flat-rate monthly allowance to assist with living costs and provide reimbursement of travel expenses (one round trip from/to the point of origin/residence).

What you will contribute

You will be responsible for your accommodation costs.

You will commit to spend a minimum of three and maximum of five months in the programme at our headquarters in Luxembourg.
