Join CEU's Student Recruitment Internship program!

What is the Student Recruitment Internship program about?

We at CEU's Student Recruitment Office couldn't be prouder to work with our amazing group of volunteer interns throughout the academic year. The  program involves current students in all kinds of student recruitment activities which aim to promote CEU's degree programs and help prospective students across the globe.

Each intern cohort consists of 35 master's and PhD students, selected from over 100 applications at the start of the academic year. In 2020–21, Student Recruitment Interns took part in 50+ projects and 10+ recruitment-related and soft skills training sessions and group meetings. 

The first BA intern cohort will be launched in 2022 to support the Student Recruitment Team in various activities related to BA Student Recruitment. 

What are the requirements?

Graduate students are expected to have at least 15 hours of volunteer time over a 10-month period, and BA students at least 20 hours over a 12-month period.  

They can choose from a wide range of student recruitment-related tasks, such as:

  • participating in fairs, webinars, campus tours, presentations and other events
  • blogging
  • taking part in video projects
  • creating content for social media (Instagram, Facebook and YouTube)
  • advising prospective students online or face-to-face
  • conducting research
  • carrying out general administrative tasks

Participating students are also offered recruitment-related and soft skill training as well as meet-up sessions.  

Why join?

As a student intern, you will become a part of a close-knit, diverse community, with students from various CEU departments. The program also offers a great opportunity for you to boost your CV and improve your soft skills, from communication and interpersonal skills to time management and team work. We also offer 10-plus soft skills training sessions that will help you grow as a professional.

At the end of the internship, you will receive a certificate stating that you have fulfilled all the requirements. We are also happy to provide recommendation letters on request.
