Before we can offer you an internship position, all available offers will be exchanged on an international level once per year. After the exchange sessions, we receive about 30 internship offers which we can offer students in Darmstadt.
The internship offers by research institutes or companies find their way to the trainees in five steps:
For the regular application procedure you must submit an online preliminary application that is not yet binding on your part. At our local committee the preliminary application can only be submitted online. The deadline is every year the 30th of November.
As soon as we offer you an internship, you must decide if you are definitely willing to accept the internship offer. In this case you have to pay a deposit of 60 Euro that will of course be reimbursed to you after finishing your internship. Afterwards you will receive all the documents that are necessary for the final application. From that moment on you are the only applicant for this internship. Of course it is your responsibility to write an application as good and expressive as possible that will be forwarded by the DAAD to the company or research institute offering the internship. The application documents in the regular application procedure must be sent to the DAAD every year before the 31st of March.
