The IAESTE local committee Hamburg provides internships for students in Hamburg 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 and usually take place during the summer months. All IAESTE internships are paid; the salary is based on the approximate costs of living in the receiving country. IAESTE takes care of all necessary formalities and usually provides accommodation for the trainees. This service is free for students enrolled in German universities due to the integration of the IAESTE programme into the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
In November you are asked to sign in on our IAESTE Hamburg system with all personal information, including contact detail, study major and study level, when and where you would like to go on an internship. APPLY NOW
In January, all member nations exchange the internship placements at a big international conference. We then announce which internship offers have been exchanged to IAESTE Germany. It is a list with around 700 jobs in over 80 nations worldwide. Each offer on the list contains information an time period and duration, required study level and major, language requirements and other required abilities.
You are asked to choose up to 10 favourite placements. But please read the requested criteria carefully as most employers won't accept you if you don't fulfill all of them.
Please be aware that it is possible we won't get one or all of them to Hamburg to distribute it to you. Please take a close look at the offers in less known countries, as they are generaly really interesting and chances are higher you get the offer.
In Febuary there is a national conference where each local committee is aiming to take home the offers, which suit the wishes of each of their students best. Directly after the conference we send you either a mail with
a) a direct approval because we got your offer and you're the only student from Hamburg who was interested in it
b) a request to write a motivation letter because we got your offer but you're not the only student from Hamburg who was interested in it
c) a denial because unfortunately we didn't get your offer.
We will also send you a list with late offers via email.
Students who have been approved (either direct or after sending their motivation letter and being accepted) will have to apply to their employer until March 30th. Over 80% of the employers accept students if they fulfill all the requested criteria (e.g. study major, study level, language level).
Starting May students receive their acceptance letters by the employers. You can now start to apply for a Visa if required, book your flight, search for accomodation (if not provided by the IAESTE committee in the guest country) and apply for the traveling allowance at the DAAD ("Fahrtkostenzuschuss") and enjoy your IAESTE experience.
