Internship opportunities

"My Research and Communications Internship experience at the World Leisure Organisation introduced me into the fascinating world of leisure studies in an academic and professional context. During my stay at their beautiful office in the culturally vibrant city of Bilbao, I participated in writing newsletters for the World Leisure Congress 2018, meetings with leisure experts from all across the globe and most importantly, I was encouraged to pursue my independent judgment when resolving any of the wide set of tasks that was given to me.

I can only recommend an internship at the World Leisure Organization, which will prove to be a full immersion into leisure studies from all possible perspectives!”
