Information for students

The IAESTE local committee Bremen provides internships for the students of Universität Bremen, Hochschule Bremen and Hochschule Bremerhaven in all technical and scientific fields. There are internships offered both in the industry as well as in research institutes. Most of the IAESTE internships last about 2-3 months, usually during the summer months. All IAESTE internships are paid, the salary is based on the specific living costs in the country of destination. IAESTE takes care of necessary formalities and usually provides accommodation for the trainees. This service is free for students enrolled in Germany due to the integration of the IAESTE programme into the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). Please note that you are not eligible to apply for an internship in a country whose passport you own.


How can I apply for an internship through IAESTE?

First of all, we expect that you have completed the third semester of your studies. If you fulfil this requirement, you have basically two options to get an internship through IAESTE:

1.) The regular application procedure

By submitting an online pre-application you will be registered in our application pool. The application starts in October. Only students in Bremen or Bremerhaven are eligible to apply for an internship at our local committee in Bremen. If you are a student of a different university please contact the local committee in your hometown/country. Depending on your wishes (regarding the preferred countries, period of time, qualifications) every applicant will receive an internship offer.

The deadline for submitting an online application is the 30th November of each year. The offered internships are always scheduled for the following year (usually during the summer months). The regular application procedure is described in detail here.


2.) The direct application for remaining internships

After the internship offers have been distributed in the regular application procedure, some internships offers may still be remaining. In addition to that there are internship offers that have been announced too late or to early for the regular application procedure. These offers are called Early Offers or Late Offers and they often have to be filled on short notice. You can find a list of these internships here. If you are interested in one of these internship offers, you should contact us immediately so that we can try to reserve it for you.
