7.       How do I apply for an internship at ODI?

We do not centrally offer internships as they are dealt with separately by each of the programmes within ODI. Please visit our website at www.odi.org.uk, where you should be able to find the contact details for each programme’s Programme Officer. If you wish to apply you can then email them directly expressing your interest in an internship. Please note to apply for an internship you must be a post graduate with a relevant MA/Msc or occasionally even a PHD. If you have this level of experience please email the relevant Programme Officer with your CV and an email describing your area of specialism/interest, when you will be available and on a full-time or part-time basis.
