Internships Berlin/Potsdam

Please note that we cannot guarantee an internship in a specific field or organization, though we will make every effort to accommodate. Please be aware that prospective internship providers normally expect candidates to have appropriate skills or background knowledge and interest in the field. In addition, students must have strong functional skills in the target language. 

Due to negligible distances, all internships except with Professors associated with FU Berlin are available to students enrolled at the University of Potsdam:
