Internships-Open Call

The EPLO welcomes interns from all over the world offering an unpaid internship period of 2 to 6 months at its premises in Sounio, Greece.


As an international organization, EPLO is characterized by diversity.  It is comprised of people from different backgrounds, cultures, work styles, values and ways of thinking. This is reflected in the Organization’s internship program, which offers opportunities in various areas, such as law, education, human rights,  political science, international relations, public  administration, human resources,  IT, media, finance, communication, marketing, web developing, web design and library support services.


The EPLO Internship Program has two main objectives:

  • To provide interns with an opportunity to develop professionally and personally
  • To have access to the students’ fresh talent and skills


Eligible candidates are undergraduate and post graduate students, also young graduates with academic studies in the broader areas of law, political science, international relations, finance & economics, sociology, information technology, events management, sales and marketing, communication, web developer, web designer, and library support services.

 There are three forms of placement, namely:    

  1.  Agreement between the Sending University and the EPLO for internships on a regular basis (i.e. Erasmus Placement);
  2.  Agreement between the Sending University, the EPLO and the Student;
  3.  Individual applications (self funded or through other scholarship programs)
