Are you a student and would you like to experience daily life at SLA? Then you can apply for an internship with us. We offer full-time internships twice a year at our offices in Aarhus and Copenhagen and once a year at our Oslo office – starting in the summer.

Keep an eye open for new postings here and on social media.

Due to collective agreements, we can’t accept anyone with a master’s degree for an internship position – you must be an active student. Unfortunately, we can not offer summer internships.


Working at SLA

We believe in a distinctly multidisciplinary approach to making livable and sustainable cities and value being a diverse workforce. Together, we are more than 130 landscape designers, architects, urban planners, lighting designers, anthropologists, biologists, sociologists, planting specialists, R&D/PhDs, microclimate designers and BIM Managers working together to enrich projects with specialist knowledge.

SLA is driven by a genuine desire to understand and change the world. The studio is constantly seeking new insights and discovering new ways of doing things. This strengthens our competencies and enriches our projects. To ensure an inspiring, learning, and sharing work environment, we have developed an internal R&D network, called sLAB, that you can choose to be a part of. The sLAB activities happen across our project teams and offices.
