A wide range of internship and volunteer opportunities are available ONLY to students registered in OSP Semester/Year Programs.
The internship program provides a framework for assigning students from diverse academic backgrounds to programs within Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and outside of the university through practical work assignments and experience. Students who wish to take on an internship may earn 2-4 credits depending on their working hours per week and may be requested to fulfill a variety of requirements within the internship period.
Please note: Fall volunteer opportunities are sometimes limited due to the autumn holiday season in Israel and the general BGU schedule. Details will be available upon arrival in Israel.
