Am I an External or Internal Learner?

Internal Learners

United Nations staff members at all levels at Headquarters with contracts valid through the end of the term are considered internal learners.

They may register for language courses free of charge.

External Learners

All others applicants who want to register to language courses in the Secretariat, including staff from UN Funds and Programmes and delegates of Permanent missions to the United Nations, are considered external learners.

External learners may be eligible to take language courses, either free of charge or for a modest fee (see eligibility).
