Overseas Internships from Global Action

Global Internships

Our aim is to provide you with a well-structured and rewarding placement, which will benefit a local community or organisation, while improving your employability.

Whether you have an interest in international development, engineering, health, education, conservation, veterinary science, or social work, Global Action can organise an internship, designed to:

  • Transfer your knowledge to a global context, and provide valuable support to local organisations in a developing country
  • Give you professional work experience, and develop your technical skills for employment


We have a limited number of 2-4 month internships in the beautiful Himalayan Kingdom of Nepal. Nepal is world-famous for its spectacular mountains and forests, together with its relaxed and friendly people, diverse cultures and religions.
