Applications are open ! Visit http://www.iaeste-hamburg.de/apply and fill your preliminary application to get a shot at the best global internships next year.
Application process always starts in November! Please follow our facebook page or regularly check this website for updates!
In November you are asked to sign in on our IAESTE Hamburg system with all personal information, including study major and study level.
In January, all member nations exchange the internship placements at a big international conference.
We then announce which internship placements have been exchanged to the national IAESTE committee. It is a list with around 1000 placements (IAESTE Germany is one of the biggest member nations so we get a lot of placements). Each offer in the list contains information on
- when the internhip may take place
- how long the internship should be at least / at most
- what study level is required
- what study major is required
- what languages are required
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 mostly also are 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 placements 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.
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 30. Normally 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"). If the employer doesn't send you the acceptance letter at least 6 weeks before your scheduled departure date, please contact us!
