This unique training opportunity will give you direct access to the United Nations’ institutions and staff, offering opportunities for networking and providing you with insights into UN career paths.
The field visits to Geneva include activities with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the United Nations Office at Geneva (UNOG), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and other institutions.
The aim of the programme, which is hosted at the historic Palais des Nations in Geneva, is to prepare and empower participants to work more effectively and efficiently in any international environment.
The UN Immersion Programme includes expert lecturers, training workshops, guided tours and the attendance of multilateral conferences. Dedicated career development sessions will give you the opportunity to have your CV, motivation letter and LinkedIn profile reviewed.
The training opportunity is available in two editions from 27 – 31 July 2020 and from 17 – 21 August 2020. A maximum of 30 participants are accepted.
It is also possible to register for a four-week preparatory e-learning course right before the field visit. All participants will receive an official UN certificate at the end of the programme.
