Recruiting an intern 

ISTOM students have 3 compulsory internships during the course of their schooling, which represent a total of 15 months of international experience.

Depending on the school year and educational objectives, the internship may be carried out within different structures: companies, consultancy firms, NGOs, national or international institutions, etc.

The missions are related to the agricultural and rural sector: agro-supply, plantations, processing (agroindustry and agri-food), trading and international trading, development consultancy & engineering, water and environmental management, etc.

They are carried out in the following targeted geographic areas: Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe  and Overseas Departments and Territories.

 Three internships within 5 years:

  • Internship to explore the agricultural world in the 2nd year,
    2 months on agricultural holding in Europe, July-August
  • Company internship in the third year,
    3 to 4 months abroad (developing or emerging countries) between June and September
  • Engineer internship
    6  months abroad (developing or emerging countries), between February and August

For further information on each internship, see Training.

To recruit an intern, please contact 
Marie-Pierre GUERRA, Business Relationship Manager: - 01 30 75 62 77

The offers are first subjected to internal validation to make sure they are consistent with the educational and professional objectives of each internship. They are then circulated among students.

A tripartite agreement must be imperatively signed between the host structure, the school and the student prior to beginning the internship.

The internship most favoured by companies, the engineer internship, must include a real engineer or junior manager mission. Each student is under the supervision of an internship supervisor belonging to the host structure and an internship supervisor from ISTOM. Upon internship completion, the engineering student is to submit an activity report to its structure and an engineer thesis to ISTOM followed by a viva. ISTOM undertakes to keep the theses confidential whenever requested by the host structure; professional secrecy is also warranted by any person who is to supervise and assess the the student’s work.
