Internship abroad

General

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, organisations 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.

You can find further tipps and information e.g. in the DAAD brochure "Praktikum im Ausland" (internship abroad). The publication includes further information about different scholarship programmes, internship agencies and ways of funding, it gives tipps for finding the perfect internship offer and it presents students that already gained new experiences during a stay abroad.

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.

DAAD has compiled an overview of internship exchanges worldwide on its website.
