Are you an ambitious graduate dedicated to countering urgent and complex global challenges, such as climate change, poverty and inequality? Do you want to invest in acquiring the knowledge and skills needed for a professional to contribute to a fair and sustainable world? And do you want to gain access to a professional career in this sector?
AMID Young Professional, offered by the Radboud University Nijmegen since 1998, invites application for its 23nd edition, starting February 2021. For the programme in 2021 we are looking for 30 to 35 trainees.
AMID Young Professional aims to identify, connect and educate leaders for the future – those who will be at the forefront of tackling complex global socio-economic and environmental risks and opportunities, and of the pursuit of sustainable development. The programme facilitates (academic) reflection on the
complexities of the world while inspiring students to move from individual success to become systems change catalysts by taking on leadership roles in policy-making and governance.
AMID Young Professional is a successful one-year dual programme where students work four days a week at an organisation in the Netherlands engaged in the field of international development and come together (online & offline) for academic reflection and training for the other part of the programme.
Today, more than three quarters of the AMID alumni is permanently working in the field of international development. They value AMID Young Professional for gaining relevant academic knowledge and practical skills, work experience, and a network.
More information on the programme, entry requirements, application procedure can be found on our website.
The application for the AMID 2021 programme is now open until October 1, 09.00 hrs, 2020. The application link can be found here.
