Work experience at a company is a great way to round off your studies. We have mandatory internship placements lasting a minimum of four weeks, up to a maximum of the period stipulated in your conditions of study.

You can also complete a voluntary internship at any stage of your studies. You decide the length of time – we can accommodate you for a minimum of four weeks up to a maximum of six months. If you want to complete an internship while your lectures are still being held, we recommend the flexible internship at Deutsche Telekom.

We provide voluntary internships for a duration of between four weeks and six months for graduates on a gap year wanting to gain valuable work experience before their master’s degree begins. This can also take the form of a flexible internship.

Don’t want to push yourself past your limits with a voluntary internship during your studies? We get it. Doing a Flexible Internship is a stress-free way to combine work and study as you can choose your hours. Perfect! Especially if you’re approaching the stressful exam season.

If you opt for a Flexible Internship, you will gain an in-depth insight into our company for a minimum of four and maximum of 18 months. We will mutually agree on an allocation of between 55 and 130 hours a month. You can fit the work in as and when you like in consultation with your team, so you won’t need to drop your standards during your studies.

During your time at the company, you will be able to fully focus on challenging projects in the fields of the Internet of Things, security testing or social media, so that you play a role in shaping our customers’ digital future.
