Internship Opportunities

We are proud of our talented students and their ability to participate in research. We truly believe that more than textbooks and formal classes, the relatively informal, though complex and multidimensional, research relationships between professors and their students prepare the next generation of exceptional professionals.

SHSS is very supportive of the student research initiatives. Every year the brightest students of SHSS go to present their research papers at the international conferences. The geography of student conference destinations is impressive: from Annual Student Human Rights Conference in the Nottingham to international student debates in Beijing and Kuala-Lumpur, from Summer Schools in Vienna, Brussels and Prague to LCSR workshops in Moscow.

In addition to student presence at the international research events, the School hosts annual Humanities and Social Sciences Conference to give students an opportunity to present discuss and improve their research in a professional environment.

As of November 2016, SHSS invites graduate students to participate in the NUGSE "Research in Education" student research journal. The journal is open to all graduate students who want experience in authoring, reviewing and editing scholarly research articles about educational policy, practice or philosophy. Some of our MA students are already involved as peer reviewers! Please see the journal link and informational letter to help you find GSE more easily, as well as our MA students' contribution to projects.

The School of Humanities and Social Sciences provides an opportunity for an academic internship, a career-related work experience of limited duration in which an individual takes on responsible roles outside of the traditional university environment.

 

This valuable form of professional training provides students with the opportunity to test their career interests in an off-campus setting.

State bodies and national companies - Parliament of RK, Civil Service Agency, Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Ministry of Defense, Ministry of Education and Science, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Oil and Gas, Institute of Economic Research, regional akimats, Development Bank of Kazakhstan, Kazakhstan TemirZholy, Samryk-Kazyna, KazMunaiGas, etc.
