Answers to common questions about applying for an internship through FUF

Do I have to study 30 credits of internship to apply?

Yes! Alternatively, 20 weeks of internship through YH or Arbetsförmedlingen. 15 credits are only enough for the places that offer a 10-week internship.

Do I have to be a member of FUF to apply for an internship? And how do I become a member in that case?

Yes! You must be a member of FUF to apply for an internship through us. You can become a member of this page.

Do I send an application to all places?

Yes! You only submit one application and are then matched against all places. In the application form, you can list the places you would most like to be matched against. We take your wishes into account as much as we can. In your CV and personal letter, however, you do not mention any specific internship.

Is it enough that I have certain experiences/competences in the form and not in my CV?

No! Everything you write in the form must also be included in your CV and in the selection questions. Only we at FUF have access to the form - while the internships only have access to your CV and the answers to the selection questions.

Should I write my application in English or Swedish?

It depends on whether you only want to be matched against the ads that are written in Swedish. If you want to have a chance of being matched against all places (including those who have written their ads in English), you should write in English. If you are not interested in being matched with them, you can write in Swedish.

When will I find out if I will be matched with an internship?

It varies. It can be a couple of days after the application deadline or a couple of weeks later. Check your inbox regularly during this time.

Can I apply for an internship through you even though I have not yet been admitted to the internship course I applied for?

Yes, you can apply even if you haven't been notified yet. A large proportion of the applicants apply for independent internship courses. Tip is to apply for courses that have no "ceiling" for the number of participants in the course to reduce the chance of not being accepted.

Is the practice in Sweden or abroad?

All internships we offer are in Sweden, but all work with issues related to global sustainable development.

Do I have to be fluent in Swedish to apply? 

No, you do not need to be fluent in Swedish.
