DTO Graduation Programme

DTO Graduation Programme

What is the Graduation Programme?


DTO firmly believes that youth involvement is crucial in achieving the objectives of the organisation. Not only because today’s young professionals will be the leaders of the future but because many talented young people struggle to find a job after graduation. DTO would like to bridge the gap between the universities and the job market through its Graduation Programme.


What does DTO offer?


DTO would like support the students in as many ways as possible. We encourage our students to conduct field research in their target countrie(s) and we further offer:


- A working station in the office in case you prefer to work in an office environment rather than libraries or study rooms

- Publishing opportunity on our webpage and we encourage you to seek academic publishing opportunities

- Working in an international environment, not only in the office but also on your field trips

- An opportunity to join our team
