Complete an Internship Abroad

A work placement abroad is perfect for you if you would like to gain international work experience, for example, during the summer or some other time that best suits you and your study schedule. A work placement is usually shorter than an exchange period that lasts an entire semester or academic year.

Depending on the degree programme, the work placement is either an obligatory or a voluntary part of the studies. Please confirm the suitability of the work placement with your degree programme beforehand. More detailed information can be provided by your faculty’s internship contact person!

A work placement position must be applied for independently well in advance. You can apply for and receive financial assistance for funding your work placement abroad from the university if the work placement will be included into your degree. The options for financial assistance include the following: Erasmus+ work placement grant, the faculty’s internship grant and the university’s travel grant.

A more detailed description of work placement opportunities abroad, funding and the practices and contact persons of the various faculties can be found in the Internship section of the Study Guide.
