What is the meaning of
"supported" and "direct" applicants?
Supported applicants are those candidates that are supported or nominated through their national authorities; e.g., Ministries of Foreign Affairs, national development agencies, etc. Direct applicants are those candidates that do not have the option of support from national authorities and apply directly to the mission.

No. Interns cannot apply for regular positions during their internship nor for the next six months following the end of the internship.
Is the internship paid?
Interns receive 750 Euro allowance per month as a compensation for their living expenses. It is the interns' own responsibility to ensure whether such an allowance is taxable in their own country.

cover my travel costs to and from the mission?
No. All travel costs to and from the mission must be covered by the intern or his/her supporting authority.

No. Interns do not accrue leave days but enjoy the same official holidays and weekends, as regular EULEX staff members do.
A family member of mine
is working at EULEX, is this a problem?
Not in principle. If interns have any relatives working at EULEX, this needs to be stated in the application form and only in cases of a possible conflict of interest, this will be taken into account.
The Application Process in the Internship programme
Can you inform me about
the status of my application?
Only applicants who have been shortlisted and called for an interview will be kept informed about the status of their application, either directly by the Mission for direct applicants or through their nominating authorities for the sponsored ones. All other applicants should assume that if they do not receive any notification by the time a new internship programme is published, their application has been unsuccessful.
Do I need to apply again
in a new internship programme if I am still waiting to hear the outcome of my
If you have heard nothing you should assume your first application was unsuccessful and you are welcome to apply again.

update to my submitted application: how can I do this?
You can send an updated application form with explanations only before the deadline for submission of applications of the specific internship programme.
Can I send my application
at any time for possible future positions?
No, only applications submitted before the application deadline and through the proper channels can be considered. Other applications outside of this timeframe will be disregarded.
Do I need to sign the
electronic version of the application form?
No signature is required when filling and sending the electronic version of the application form. However by submitting the form you are vouching for the accurateness of the information provided. Any misleading statement may lead to your exclusion from the selection process or to a termination of the internship.
How will I be notified if
I am selected for interview?
Usually candidates are notified by e-mail.
I was interviewed but
have not heard anything further?
We endeavour to notify all interviewees of the outcome of their interview. Occasionally due to the very large numbers of applications and interviews delays might occur.
I fulfil the requirements
asked for in the job description but still was not interviewed, why?
We receive a large amount of applications from interested candidates making competition for each advertised position very tough.
