Seoul City is recruiting dozens of foreign student interns who will participate in the city’s administrative and volunteer work, officials said.

Seoul Metropolitan Government said it would pick 30 foreign students for Seoul City’s global internship next month.

The city government has run the global internship program twice a year since 2008 to offer opportunities for foreign students to work for the city.

Students will be dispatched to Seoul City Hall or affiliated organizations and support administrative work. They will also take part in volunteer jobs at facilities for the disabled and visit a number of local sightseeing spots, officials said.

The seven-week-long program will run from Jan. 4 to Feb. 23.

Only college and graduate students who are permitted to stay in the country until Feb. 23 are eligible to apply.

The deadline of the application is Dec. 2. The final result will be released on Dec. 24 after two rounds of screening.

As of this summer, over 460 expats from 68 countries had participated in the global internship program, the city said,
