Singapore internships made available by RUG alumni

19 January 2016

Are you a RUG student and are you interested in gaining international work experience? Ready to put what you have learned at the RUG into practice? Look out for the internship vacancies made available through the Working Experience Program Singapore (WEP). Via the Alumni Chapter Singapore and the Ubbo Emmius Fund of the University, RUG students now get the unique opportunity to gain international work experience during a two-month paid internship in the modern and vibrant city-state Singapore.

Feedback from last year’s interns vary from ‘excellent guidance' to ‘freedom to carry out own initiatives’, not to mention the additional social/network opportunities that alumni in Singapore will provide by organizing a few meetings. Of course, we are looking for independent, strong-willed and open-minded students. Students will have to look for their own accommodation and are in charge of their own visa-application.
