Tips for planning & applying for an internship abroad

Before you blindly set out to find an internship abroad, take time to prepare - we recommend, starting research on desired countries and employers around 12 months before the planned start of the internship

Clear up the following questions for yourself:

  • What will help me grow professionally and personally? What are my expectations?
  • Which industry or division would I like to get to know?
  • Do I want to complete my internship at a large corporation, a medium-sized company or a start-up?
  • Do my professors possibly have interesting (research) contacts abroad?
  • How do I finance my internship? What internship compensation is common in the respective field?

If you have been able to successfully answer the questions for yourself and have found a suitable internship position based on your own criteria, to which you would like to apply, prepare carefully for the application and potential interviews. Usually, the Career Center of your university can help you further byadvising services, workshops and information. Of interest might be:
