Am I guaranteed a place in the internship when I apply?

Unfortunately no, internship positions are offered based on individual company requirements, availability, and your suitability for the positions available. But if you are flexible and realistic in your expectations, we can help to give you the best chance of receiving internship offers. We will do our best to match you with a host company, however the ultimate decision on who is accepted into a specific internship is the host company. If agri LIDA team encounters any trouble with a particular placement request, we may speak to you further and ask you to refine your goals and/or expectations. We will attempt to find your first choice, but there is a possibility that we may need to look elsewhere.
