EU-Praktikum THÜRINGEN and your home university do not assume any responsibility for the existence of infection control measures on site. Please consider the valid regulations of your home university concerning stays abroad (students of the Ilmenau University of Technology please inform yourself under Corona Information).

In particular, use the information provided by the German Foreign Office (AA) and the local authorities. The existing regulations for the planned internship period apply.

  • Please inform us immediately if you do not start, cancel or interrupt your internship stay due to a change in the security situation or a current travel warning issued by the Federal Foreign Office in your host country.
