Internships Abroad

An internship abroad represents an important opportunity to gain valuable international work experience. Furthermore, it may help you to create an international network and give you a unique insight into another corporate culture. Last but not least, an internship abroad allows you to improve your language skills and to grow personally.

However, internships abroad demand organizational efforts. The following web pages and links are to provide first orientation.

DAAD PROMOS-Scholarship

Teacher Education Scholarship

Please consider the following information on the current Covid-19 pandemic before you apply for an internship or scholarship program.

The United Kingdom left the European Union and by extension the Erasmus+ program. The Erasmus+ contracts run out in 2022 and, thus, we can presumably continue to fund internship in the UK until May 2022. Internships starting after May 2022 may be funded via the PROMOS-Scholarship program.
