Please note:

Please keep in mind that even if you meet the qualifications described above, there is no guarantee of an internship. Our mission is to find all students a matching position but we are always depending on other parties and finally, it is the farmer’s decision whether to hire you or not. 

Why do we ask for evidence of English language?

 In order to register with the agri LIDA you must satisfy us that you have the necessary knowledge of English. Interns play a vital role in the agriculture in Denmark. As a person it is your responsibility to work safely. A key part of this is communication and the need to be able to communicate clearly and effectively in English. 

Am I guaranteed an internship placement?

Unfortunately, no. If you register for the program 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. What the agri LIDA program does is help make you more “attractive” to a potential employer in a competitive job market. We want you to be successful and will try to help you any way we can!

Gain experience in the field, meet interesting people from around the world, make new friends and come home with a different perspective on life.
