    In many study programmes it is mandatory to do an internship. If you are interested in doing an internship in Kassel, Witzenhausen or at the University of Kassel during your stay in Germany, please inform yourself as early as possible about opportunities and vacancies. It is advisable to start your search at least as early as six months in advance. You can look for companies in and around Kassel on the internet, or contact professors working in the faculty you are interested in. Please pay attention to the requirements stated in the job advertisement. For example, many companies demand a good command of the German language as a prerequisite. The University of Kassel cannot place you in an internship, but we can facilitate organising your stay, help you with specific questions and support you in developing your application documents.
