Program Description

If you are interested in applying your German skills in a professional specialized field in Dresden, a combination „German Course“ and „Company Internship“ are recommended.  Such a reference will be helpful later on for your career.

We arrange for internships in the fields of architecture, tourism, gastronomy, office communications, marketing and design.  The internship is at any rate possible in Dresden.  We will take into consideration your preferred location and companies, although we cannot guarantee them.  In this case we will propose a suitable alternative. 


Be aware that internships in Germany are categorically unpaid.  However some firms do provide a small stipend for living expenses.
