The task of the International University for Peace is to educate for peace, engaging in teaching, research, post-graduate training and dissemination of fundamental knowledge for the full development of the human person and societies through the interdisciplinary study of all issues relating to peace. The challenge that all Nations and that all men and women must face is peace education, which constitutes the best means of saving the human race, threatened by war. If education is the main instrument of science and technology, it must be even more so to realize that primary right of the human person which is Peace.

Internships may be included in the University’s training offer and included in the study plans, which consist of a period of job orientation and training, which do not constitute an employment relationship.

To carry out a training internship, an agreement between the University and the host entity (company, professional firm, cooperative, public bodies, etc.) is naturally necessary, accompanied by a training project drawn up by the host entity and the intern in which the respective rights and duties.
