Internships

In an increasingly global society, there is a growing emphasis on the foreign dimension across virtually all professional activities. In addition to being an important source of personal enrichment, the qualifications obtained, experiences gained and contacts made within the scope of an internship abroad are highly valuable and useful.

Furthermore, internships abroad, but also final theses of practical relevance completed with a foreign university or company, are a great and flexible alternative or supplement to studying abroad. Gaining practical work experience combined with familiarizing yourself with the professional environment in a foreign country is also helpful in order to develop new perspectives for the further course of your studies.

In addition, a graduate traineeship supported by funding from the Erasmus+ program facilitates entry into a converging international job market.

Please find below some useful information on how to organize an internship abroad, as well as funding opportunities for internships abroad within the scope of Erasmus+ and other scholarship programs.
