Students interested in doing an internship in Berlin can apply for an 8-week placement on a full-time basis (35-40 hours per week) following the end of the regular FU-BEST Spring semester or as a stand-alone option. The internship allows students to explore an enriching academic experience in Berlin by immersing themselves in a German workplace and gaining valuable intercultural experience along with skills for their careers.
Please note: Due to the high workload and complex schedule of the FU-BEST Program, internships are not offered during the semester.
For the placement, FU-BEST partners with Cultural Vistas gGmbH and Ayusa-Intrax GmbH, two German-American organizations which arrange internships for foreign students in Germany. Internships are sought with organizations and companies in Berlin that match each student’s professional and academic background, previous work experience, and career goals. Each internship placement is arranged on an individual basis.
