Undergraduate Internship Programs in Nigeria 2023

Internship positions are available for Nigerian undergraduate students in the university, polytechnic and colleges of education.

Undergraduate internship in Nigeria offers students the opportunity to learn and gain practical experience in their field of study in school.

For example, there are internship opportunities for Law students in legal Law firms in Nigeria.

Also, students in other disciplines can gain practical experience through available traineeship programs.

This post is about the undergraduate internship programs available to Nigerian students in all fields of study in Lagos, Abuja, Port Harcourt and other states in Nigeria.

Let me know in the comment if you have further questions or need further clarification. I would love to hear from you.

An undergraduate internship is an excellent way to gain practical experience in your field of study.

There are numerous beneficial reasons to engage in an internship program during the holidays, industrial training (IT) or any free time you have from school activities.

Companies in Nigeria offer virtual internship programs accessible to students at every location in Nigeria.

But, I recommend you enrol in a physical traineeship program. The chances of retainment after your NYSC program is high.

The application requirements for undergraduate internship programs in Nigeria are an application letter and academic transcripts.
