How does an internship work?
The potential employer receives the profiles of matching students that show their academic record, work experience and language skills according to their business requirements. Selected students will be involved in the daily routine of each department unless both sides agree on special arrangements.
Payment, if any, must be arranged for before any further plans may be made. A € 250 administration fee is due with the program application. A € 250 cancellation fee applies only if a student serves less then ¾ of his/her internship.
Due to the gov't regulations, students should apply preferrably six to eight months prior to their intended internship.
