Kindly note that the distribution of internships depends on the students' previous work experience, education, etc. We are happy to take any requests into account and arrange a placement accordingly, if possible. 

Combine a German language with an internship of (minimum) 4 weeks. 

Kindly note, that the internship must have a duration of at least 4 weeks. However, the longer the better! 
Regarding the duration of the German course, we usually recommend 8 weeks as students must be able to have some knowledge of German before starting (preferably B1). On request we will however be happy to offer you a different combination.
