An internship abroad makes it possible to gain subject-related practical experience and to complement your CV with a valuable bonus point. The intercultural competencies and advanced foreign language skills you will gain during your internship abroad will make your profile more attractive for future employers.
Students on internships are rarely able to live off the money they are being paid; most internships abroad are not paid at all. Scholarships can provide some of the money you will require for the period of your internship.
"My strong curiosity about foreign culture, the craving for new interpersonal experiences and the wish to improve my English skills and gain practical experience first-hand motivated me to take the chance and study in a foreign country." (Leona, practical training year, surgical term in Sotuh Africa)
