The traineeship is addressed mainly to young university graduates, without excluding those who – in the framework of lifelong learning – have recently obtained a diploma and/or are at the beginning of a new professional career.

The paid traineeships are for EU nationals who, by the deadline for submitting applications, have completed at least the first part of their university studies and have a degree certificate or equivalent.

The unpaid traineeships are for third, fourth or fifth-year university students who have to do a compulsory training period as part of their course.  Also, students who are required to do research for a thesis or a doctorate may apply.

Candidates must have very good knowledge of at least two EU official languages. Given that English and French are used extensively for internal communication within the GSC, a good knowledge of English or French is required, (*C level according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages).

The majority of applications currently come from candidates with qualifications in law, political science, international relations, EU studies, and economics.
The GSC is also looking for trainees with qualifications in other domains, such as: translation, human resources, communication, education studies, computer sciences (collaboration platforms), archives and document management, civil engineering, graphic design, multimedia, agriculture, biochemical engineering, health, and food safety, energy management, environment, aerospace engineering.
