Since environmental challenges require practical solutions, the UniFR_ESH Institute offers the possibility of an internship (9 ECTS) in the program Applied Environmental Management. Such an internship offers insights into working methods on environmental issues and a first step into the working world.

Examples of internships are nature conservation institutions, NGOs with a focus on the environment, environmental agencies and the departments of public administration dealing with environmental issues.


The University's International Relations Office offers the possibility for students doing an internship in Europe (outside Switzerland) to obtain a SEMP scholarship. You will find more information in the document below.
