Study Tour Internship

Internships have now been filled.


The AIIA Victoria is pleased to offer the opportunity to apply for a place as an Intern on the Iran Study Tour.   The study tour runs 8th April 2017 and 25th April.

Iran is one of the most exciting places in the world now.  Sanctions have held back the country for years. Things are now changing.

It has a fantastic history going back thousands of years.  We will visit many of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

We will be briefed by our Embassy on arrival and are now organising meetings with Universities, Think Tanks and others.

Benefits of participating as an intern on this Study Tour:
•    Significant time with experienced and interested AIIA members
•    A chance to meet Iranians from many different areas
•    Significant subsidy for the selected applicant in development of leadership and broadening understanding of international relations
•    Chance to continue the skills and networking gained during the tour, with work for the YPF for the remainder of 2017
•    Experience of a lifetime!

AIIA Victoria has funds to subsidize up to a maximum of two (2) interns but is not obliged to provide two places.  This will be based on the suitability of applications received.
