In Germany it is common practice for students to improve their career prospects and gain practical experience by working as an intern. In some fields of study this is even mandatory. As an international student you can benefit from this opportunity as well and choose among a great variety of available internships. While working in a German company you can also improve your German language skills and learn more about the German culture.
What are the specific regulations concerning internships in Germany? How would an internship improve my degree? Where can I find good internship opportunities in my field of study? Can I apply for post-graduation internships?
