Internship abroad


As part of your studies, students often have the opportunity to complete an internship abroad. If you decide to do an internship abroad, you have to apply for a placement at the respective companies and institutions independently. After receiving a positive response, you can apply for a scholarship at the International Office of the Hochschule Bremerhaven - University of Applied Sciences. Further information is available at Scholarships and other possibilities for grants.

Finding an internship

Finding an internship abroad often requires a lot of patience and a high degree of self-initiative. The International Office and Career Service Centre of the Hochschule Bremerhaven - University of Applied Sciences as well as the respective internship coordinators of the different study programs can assist students in searching and organising internships abroad.
The brochure "Wege ins Auslandspraktikum" includes information about different scholarship programmes, internship agencies, ways of funding and practical experiences.

Furthermore, there are agencies helping students to find an internship, providing grants and giving support while organising the internship and the different formalities connected to it. Some of the agencies provide their services for free, though the private ones often charge a fee. 

The International Office often receives internship offers which are listed below. Please consider that the listed offers do not represent either a rating or a recommendation. Please review the companies and the preferred internship position yourself and check whether you have to pay an agency fee. The Erasmus quality criteria can be used as guidance.

More internships offers are published at national and international internship and job markets.
