These pages contain viable information for foreign students, who applied for an IAESTE-internship in Karlsruhe.
With IAESTE it is unfortunatly not possible, to directly apply to a certain Local Comitee for an internship. Therfore we won't attend to applications coming from Germany or abroad for an internship in Germany. Those of you who are interssted to do an internship in Germany we kindly ask to contact the IAESTE National Comitee in your country.
We are glad you applied for an internship in Karlsruhe. As soon as you get accepted by your employer, you are ready to go!
Our Local Comitee in Karlsruhe consists of about fifteen students. We are working voluntarily for IAESTE because we are interessted in getting to know foreign students, different cultures and languages - just like you!

During your internship you have the possibility to acquire important experiences for your field of study. At the same time we want you to get to know the german society and culture.

As soon as the employer returns the acceptance papers the IAESTE national commitee will send them to you. Once you get these papers it`s time for you to organize some things:
Within 2 weeks fill out the form N5/b and send it to your homecountries national commitee (sometimes there are more forms to fill out and send). Once we get your N5/b we start looking for your accommodation. It is very important that we get the N5/b as soon as possible.
If you are not a citizen of the European Union you need a visa for Germany. Since the processing may take severeal weeks you should apply for a visa at your closet German embassy as soon as possible. For this application you need the N5/b. Please ask for a "Schengen-Visa". This visa is also valid for our neighboring countries the Netherlands and France. They are a frequent destination for our trips.
Please make sure your passport is valid for the duration of your internship.
