GRINT Centre for Education and Culture: Study Russian Language, Culture, History and Politics in Moscow, Russia

Internship (independently or with language classes)

A first step to a brighter future!
Internships are available for Business, Political Science, Accounting/Finance, Law, Marketing, Journalism and other spheres in Russian and International companies. The following companies have previously accepted our interns: Synergy International Systems, RusOTIS, CAF Russia, Roel Consulting, PSI Russia, Transparency International, Kidsave International, The Moscow News, Rusfarm, etc.

Students are placed in the field of their choice by GRINT. Students should provide a clear indication of the type of experience they would like to receive, and its relevance to their future career, in the application form.

Although we guarantee that if you are accepted into an internship program you will be placed in an appropriate institution or company, we cannot guarantee a placement in a specific company in advance.

In most cases you will not know which company or institution you will be working for in Moscow prior to arrival. You must go through a job interview process, in most cases, and your potential employer will have the final say in the the hiring process.

Most internships are not paid. In fact, in many cases the internship program is more expensive than the regular study abroad program at the same location. This is due to the fact that finding internships, and supervising them, is a time consuming process requiring a full time staff position.

1. Invitation letter and registration
2. Internship placement 
3. Lodging at the dormitory
