The Centre for Global Constitutionalism offers year-long internships to undergraduate and postgraduate taught students enrolled at the University of St Andrews. The call for these is issued at the beginning of each academic year. You will find the most recent call below.

At present, we do not offer summer internships nor internships to external applicants.

Call for internship applications, 2019-20

The Centre for Global Constitutionalism at the University of St Andrews is pleased to announce its call for interns for the 2019-20 academic year. We are seeking motivated students with interests in the Centre’s core areas of research (constitutionalism, global governance, international law, institutions, and organisations) as applied to a wide range of issues including security, human rights, trade, refugees and migration, and the environment.

This internship is unpaid but offers an opportunity to work with IR faculty and fellow students to further develop research, writing, and presentation skills. Interns will assist with the organisation of CGC events and help to promote the Centre’s work within the School of IR, university and local community. Each intern will also complete an original research project on a topic of their choosing in consultation with the CGC directors. The resulting essays are published in the spring as the annual CGC Junior Scholar Working Paper Series.

Application procedure

All interested undergraduate and post-graduate taught candidates are encouraged to apply. Please submit the following documents to

  1. CV;
  2. Statement of interest (no more than one A4 page) detailing your goals for the internship, how you could contribute to Centre, and how the experience would benefit your future development;
  3. A short essay of 500 words responding to the question: How are new technologies impacting global governance?

The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday, September 27. The selection of successful applicants will be announced soon thereafter.

We look forward to receiving your applications,

Dr Adam Bower and Dr Mateja Peter, CGC Co-Directors
