An internship abroad is useful for several reasons. It is advantageous for future job applications, it helps with language skills and fosters intercultural competence. Furthermore, interns abroad encounter new work routines and mentalities, become more open and tolerant and learn to find their way in new environments.
The International Office gives advice on realising an internship abroad. The brochure "Wege ins Auslandspraktikum" [Paths to Internships Abroad] by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is also available here as well as "Flyer Praktikum im Ausland" [Internship abroad (in German)] from Bielefeld University.
