CERN Administrative Student Programme 2024

Looking for a unique and exciting way to gain practical experience during your undergraduate studies in Administration? Look no further than the CERN Administrative Student Programme! As an intern at CERN, you’ll have the opportunity to work in a world-famous organization and centre of scientific excellence. The programme is open to students pursuing a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree who are required or encouraged to acquire work experience through an internship.


During the internship, which lasts between 2 and 12 months, you could work in a variety of disciplines, including translation, human resources, advanced secretarial work, business administration, logistics, law, finance, accounting, library and information science, engineering management, science communication, education, audiovisual, communication and public relations, psychology, and audit. The possibilities are endless, and successful applicants will learn and contribute their knowledge in a variety of domains.


So what do you get in return for your hard work? The interns will enter into an internship contract with CERN and will receive a monthly allowance of 3407 Swiss Francs (net of tax), as well as a travel allowance. If the intern is married or has children, a supplementary grant will be given. CERN will also cover medical insurance, although the insurance allowance will be deducted from the intern’s pay. In addition, a monthly 2.5 paid leaves are granted.

To be eligible for the CERN Administrative Student Programme, applicants must be a national CERN Member or a CERN Associate Member State, have completed 18 months of their undergraduate studies (either Bachelor’s or Master’s degree), specialize in an administrative field at the time of the internship, and be able to stay full for 2 months minimum and 12 months maximum. Applicants must also be full-time registered students until the completion of the internship, and be fluent and proficient in English or French language. However, students who are staying in STEM/Engineering fields are not eligible.

If this sounds like an opportunity you can’t pass up, head to the CERN website to apply! Applicants will need to submit a copy of their most recent academic transcript (representing detailed work), a reference letter from a university professor, a CV, and a second reference letter if they have completed a previous internship. The reference letter may be submitted by the candidate directly or by the referee on his/her own via the received application link. The application deadline is March 11, 2024, so don’t wait to apply!
