Since July 2023, the Visual Sociology and Museum Studies Lab (VSMSlab) of the Department of Multimedia and Graphic Arts have been merged with the Museum Lab of the CYENS Centre of Excellence in Nicosia. Please visit our new website at https://museumlab.cyens.org.cy/ for more information.
Thank you for your interest in the internship program offered by the Visual Sociology and Museum Studies Lab (VSMS Lab) of the Cyprus University of Technology.
The internship program is offered each year and enables undergraduate and graduate students as well as recent graduates to work on projects related to their field of study. VSMS Lab interns gain valuable real-world experience by getting involved with the ongoing research activities of the Lab.
The internships are completed under the supervision of the Lab coordinator. Their duration depends on the needs of the intern or project (usually full time or part time for a period of one to three months). Although the number of positions could vary the usual intake is 1-3 interns per year depending on the Lab’s ongoing projects.
VSMS Lab internships are unpaid internships. International applicants are encouraged to apply for an Erasmus Student Mobility for Placements program which enables students to spend a placement of a period of 3 months in an organization in another participating country (applies to students at higher education institutions).
