Undergraduate/postgraduate students may apply for an internship at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs throughout the year. Successful applicants are either placed at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or in a Cyprus Diplomatic Mission overseas, depending on their preference, as well as on the needs of the Ministry and its Diplomatic Missions.  

Applicants are required to:

(a) hold Cypriot citizenship,

(b) have completed at least a two-year university course (i.e. 60 ECTS),

(c) have very good knowledge of the Greek and English language and/or of the official language of the country, in which the Diplomatic Mission of the Republic of Cyprus where they have applied for a position, is located.

Internships are unpaid and do not incur financial burden for the State in allowances, insurance cover, etc.

Application forms must be sent either to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs by e-mail at internship@mfa.gov.cy, or to the Diplomatic Mission where the candidate is applying for a position.  The applicant's details will be kept on file and they may be invited to an interview if shortlisted, depending on their qualifications, experience, and skills. Applicants may also be offered the possibility of an internship for an alternative period. 

Interns are required to sign a Contract on a non-remunerative basis, which will include, inter alia, a confidentiality clause in respect to data and information that may come to their attention during the internship period.
