Requirement of IELTS for Summer Internships at WHO
Hey the great news that i have got for you is that you do not need to appear for an IELTS exam because all WHO internship programs are exempted from the requirement of IELTS but that being said you may still need to appear for an interview and in that your English language proficiency skills may be evaluated which is why i suggest you to stay prepared for your interview at WHO for internships recruitment.
I also want to mention here that the internships offered by World Health Organization (WHO) have a duration of around 4 to 8 weeks whereas some of their summer internships also have an extended duration of 24 weeks and mostly what i have seen is that their top internees are actually offered with full time employment at the end of their internships.
How to Check your Eligibility for WHO internship program?
Now this is really important because i have been in HR for many organizations and have reviewed thousands of internship applications so i would like to mention that if you are not in your final year, or final semester then please do not apply for WHO internship program because these summer internships at WHO are actually designed for final year/semester students who are so near for stepping in professional employment world.
You must also know that the age of WHO internship applicants must also be over 20 years and have been enrolled in any degree program of subjects like public health, administration, medicine, law, human rights, management, and similar disciplines. Whereas, there are strict instructions by WHO HR that the applicants of their summer internship programs must also have high level of English or other language proficiency as per the station of internship program and the candidates from only certain countries on the panel of WHO will be entertained.
