Internships Abroad

International internships are much more than just work experience

International Internships

You want to gain practical experience in the professional world, improve your language skills and at the same time make interesting and important contacts?

Then an internship is just the thing for you!

Internships allow you to collect study-and subject-related on-the-job-experience, to "network" and to establish contacts in companies for your future employment. You can develop your foreign language skills and expand them with useful technical vocabulary. At the same time, you will get to know the people and cultural characteristics of the host country.

Participants who come back from a stay abroad, tell us again and again that it is a great personal enrichment, to have spent some time in a different environment, a different culture and for many employers the experience abroad is an important prerequisite for the selection of candidates.

An internship represents an excellent alternative or supplement to a study period abroad, because you simultaneously gain practical work experience and learn about the working world of a foreign country. This might also help to develop new perspectives for the further course of your study.

Since an internship is often unpaid, we have compiled in this brochure a number of scholarship programs that will help you to cover the costs and bring you one step closer to the realization of your internship abroad plans.

If you have any questions or just want further information, we are happy to help.

Offered Internships

When we receive internship offers from companies and institutions, we include them on our website and also send them to the respective faculty. Even though we naturally check the offers beforehand, acceptance does not represent a recommendation on our part. Please inform yourself about the respective providers and also whether the internship contents make sense for you.

Praxisschock - News from internships abroad

On our blog 'Praxisschock' (practise shock) you can read blogs and final reports from fellow students who went abroad for an internship during or after their studies. This way, you can almost have a first-hand experience of the adventure 'internship abroad' - and maybe you are inspired on getting into the adventure as well.

If so, we would be happy to have you as a blogger who is sharing the experience of doing an internship abroad, not only from the internship itself but also from the organizational preparation. Just send us an email!
