Aimee | Istanbul, TR International Relations

My internship in Istanbul was enriching in every way and broadened my horizons. Not only did I make new friends, but I also got to know a new culture and language and at the same time discovered new sides of myself. An experience that I would not want to miss.

Louise | The Hague, NL Cultural Management

Any professional experience abroad brings with it a variety of opportunities, surprises and creative impulses. It requires openness, flexibility and curiosity - mental skills that become more and more important with each new step into the 21st century. This is what I learned during my internship in the Netherlands.

Adrian | Copenhagen, DK Mechatronics

I was allowed to design and build an attitude control system demonstrator for spaceflight from scratch, from theoretical modelling, mechanics, electronics and software to measurements. In the process, I learned a lot about how these domains interrelate and influence each other in practice.

Anne | Paris, FR
Industrial Engineering and Management

The last six months have definitely been an experience I wouldn't want to miss, both professionally and personally. I was able to face unexpected challenges and met interesting young people who I can now count among my circle of friends. This was certainly not my last stay abroad!
