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.

We make every effort to provide you with all the information you need. But sometimes your questions remain unanswered.
