Student internship scheme

What is the Student Internship Scheme?

The British Embassy Bangkok offers occasional short term (up to 3 months) student internships. The internships provide an exciting opportunity to work alongside embassy staff in our Commercial, Consular, Political, Visa, or Management Sections. What would I be doing?

These placements offer candidates the challenge of working alongside embassy staff, conducting research, writing reports, undertaking translation, and providing administrative support. Candidates would usually be allocated to a particular section, but have the opportunity to see the work of the rest of the embassy. When do the placements take place?

The recruitment take place when there is an appropriate project arises for intern to take on at the Embassy. Placements are usually from 1 to 3 months duration.

Do I get paid?

Unfortunately, intern is not a salaried positions, but successful candidates will receive a small daily allowance.

Furthermore, to enable the appropriate security checks to be carried out, you must have resided for at least three consecutive years in one country. All applicants must be aware that a lack of sufficient background information may preclude an applicant from being granted clearance.
