Are you interested in an international internship abroad?


An international internship means work placement included in your degree and carried out abroad during your studies. An internship abroad during your studies is not compulsory, but it is highly recommendable. An international internship can be carried out at any point of your studies.

Working abroad is an excellent way to gather experience of working in different cultures and organisations. It will also help you to build your language skills, confidence, tolerance, and ability to adapt to new and different situations – intellectual capital with a value that cannot be measured in euros.

Employers highly value professional experience acquired abroad. An international internship is an excellent addition to your CV and an advantage when you are looking for a job!
