Internships for undergraduate students
The internship portal of the Ministry of Education offers internships to high-performing Emiratis in the higher education institutes. Through the portal, Emirati students can find internship opportunities at some of the key companies in knowledge-based industries in the UAE’s private sector. The companies offering opportunities include 30 global multinational private sector companies and top UAE government-owned companies in the private sector.
Training opportunities are given to students in sophomore, junior and senior years. The internship can be part of a university requirement for graduation, or an additional summer internship or both.
Conditions for applying for internship
Applicants should have a minimum Grand Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 GPA from an accredited higher education institute in the UAE. They must be able to commit to the full internship period. Eligible students can register and apply.
The aim of the initiative is to give Emirati undergraduates good quality internship experiences in knowledge economies, and on-the-job training to gain practical skills they need for future professional careers.
