Application for a traineeship with IAESTE

In order to apply for an internship, you must be enrolled in a technical, mathematical or scientific course of study at the university or a college in Stuttgart. Besides, you're not supposed to be more than 30 years old. Ideally you have completed at least 2 semesters in order to be able to work adequately in the company.

Further requirements, such as specialist areas, are determined by the employer.

An application takes two steps

  1. Pre-application with us, i.e. with IAESTE Stuttgart
  2. If successful: application for an internship with the employer (suggested to you by IAESTE)

1. Pre-application (online) at IAESTE Stuttgart

By submitting the pre-application online, you apply for participation in the internship exchange with IAESTE (without obligation and independent of a specific position). This step is important so that we can determine, which of the applicants fit to our program and what kind of positions they are looking for.

The application deadline is 13.01.2019. The pre-application is already possible and can be submitted by following this link: https://iaeste.tu-dresden.de/yii/

The first step is to create an account. The user name for the account is always the e-mail address. The pre-application form can then be filled in (university/course of studies/language knowledge/chosen location and dates). It is also possible to upload a letter of motivation. This is not yet required for the pre-application and we will ask you to upload it later when applying for a specific internship.

2. Application with the employer

The next step is to apply with the employer. This is done on our Exchange Platform, for which you have to create an account. The following documents must be submitted:

  • Letter of motivation
  • Student Nominated Form
  • The original "O-Form" (offer form), please make a copy for yourselves
  • Cover letter to the employer
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Language certificate for English and, if applicable, other language certificates
  • Transcript of records (issued by the university. Please don't forget to explain the grades, because e.g. in Russia a 5 is considered the best grade.
  • List of previous practical training (indicating the type of activity, period, name and registered office of the company, only where relevant)
  • Passport copy - easy to read, Attention: for Russia the passport must be valid for at least another 18 months on entry
  • Certificate of matriculation from the university (most recent)
  • if necessary, further documents if these are requested on the "O-form" (offer form)
  • DAAD health insurance, if applicable

About the letter of motivation:
The letter of motivation should express why you want to do an internship abroad and why you want to do it with IAESTE. Furthermore, you should introduce yourself and your interests briefly. The content and also your creativity count. The letter of motivation should be informal, funny and creative!

Travel expense allowance

Under certain conditions you can apply for a travel allowance with the DAAD. This is done online via the DAAD portal. Travel allowance can only be granted to German students or Bafög students. Detailed information can be found here.

Please book your flight only after you have been accepted for the internship and received the acceptance papers.
