Your internship abroad

Discover a foreign country on the job: You can gain work experience, experience different ways of working, develop valuable career opportunities - and meet lots of new people along the way.

 

How do I proceed?

  • Look for an internship with a company abroad.
  • Write an application including a curriculum vitae in tabular form and a meaningful letter of motivation and send it to your selected company.
  • Have the internship abroad approved by your department and clarify the recognition of your performance with the relevant module supervisors.
  • Register your stay abroad: 1) Hand in a copy of your Learning Agreement Traineeship (EU) or your Internship Agreement (non-EU) at the examination office. 2a) In KL & PS you also submit the registration form to your examination office. 2b) In ZW you also register via Campusboard.
  • After your return, submit the confirmation of your internship to your department and to the Examination Office.
