There are three different internship tracks which are available, based out of Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa.
On the WUJS internship tracks you will combine a tailor-made professional internship in a field of your choice with the additional benefits of a regular Ulpan (Hebrew language) Course, weekly field trips, overnight hikes, meetings with Israeli peers, and a variety of fun and enriching activities.
Here is a sample schedule so you can better understand how the programme works. Please be advised that the schedule will vary from city to city and is subject to change.
You will live in apartments in a desired neighbourhood in one of Israel’s three largest cities and intern in almost any area of industry and commerce, public and private sector, art and culture, hi-tech, politics and much more. This is a great opportunity for you to enhance your CV and live like an independent Israeli, all within a warm yet dynamic environment and supported by professional and experienced staff.
Prior to your arrival to Israel, a member of the WUJS staff will contact you to discuss your CV and areas of interest. Following that, you’ll receive a choice of possible internship placements that meet your skills and interests from which to choose your five month internship. Note that acceptance to an internship is often dependent on your experience and qualifications. In addition, those who have a good command of the Hebrew language will have more options available to them. As a participant on WUJS internship programme you will be required to intern approximately 25-30 hours a week.
