The good reasons for studying abroad can to a large extent also be transferred to an internship abroad. You gain practical work experience in another country – an experience that pays off both personally and professionally.
Although the Schmalkalden University of Applied Sciences itself does not finance any internships abroad, there are various contact points that can be of assistance to you. If you are looking for an internship in one of the member countries of the Erasmus programme, the Leonardo Office Thuringia in Ilmenau is your contact. It provides information on how to apply, receive funding and prepare a contract for your stay. Please note that during your Bachelor's programme and again during your Master's programme you can each receive a grant for an internship abroad of up to six months and additionally for a study abroad of, again, up to six months.
