Interns from abroad

Would you like to offer a student from abroad the possibility of an internship in your company or factory? That is possible as long as you comply with a few requirements regarding visa and residence regulations and labour legislation, for example. You can find out what these are and which interns from abroad are admitted to the German labour market from the fact sheet for employers published by the Federal Employment Agency (BA), entitled “Studienfachbezogene Praktika für ausländische Studierende” (“Study-related placements for foreign students”).

The Federal Employment Agency (BA) also provides concise information that you can give potential interns about gaining admission to a work placement in Germany in a fact sheet in English entitled “Work Placement Admission”.
