Welcome to our LC Bonn website!

We are looking forward to meeting you!

About us


We are the IAESTE team at the University of Bonn and would like to introduce ourselves briefly below:

Our group of students forms the IAESTE Local Committee Bonn. We are all students at the university here and love to help others as an opportunity to make new experiences.  All of us work voluntarily to ensure that students at the University of Bonn can do an internship abroad and at the same time we look after foreign students who come to Germany for an internship. To be more precise, this means that we are always available as a contact person for any questions you may have, that we recruit internships for you and then forward them to you and support you in the application process. Furthermore, we look for accommodation for our foreign guests, organise activities for them, introduce them to German culture and help them with all the hurdles that life as a foreigner in Germany can bring.

We do this work because we are committed to intercultural exchange and want to promote it. We really enjoy the contact with you and the foreign students, and that’s why it’s the great memories, the funny moments and the new experiences that motivate us again and again. We support cultural exchange from all around the world  – just like you!

Join us

We currently meet every two weeks via zoom to discuss current and upcoming issues. Anyone who is interested in supporting us in our work or wants to learn a bit more about us is welcome to come and chat with us! To get the access data to our meeting, please write to us in advance via email or on Facebook.

If you, as a student at the University of Bonn, have become curious and would also like to support the international exchange of interns, you are very welcome to join us! And if the new acquaintances and wonderful experiences are not rewarding enough, you can also have your work with us credited towards the International Office’s Certificate of International Competence.

Outgoing

The IAESTE Local Committee Bonn arranges internships abroad for students of the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn in all technical and scientific fields. There are places in the industry as well as at research institutes and universities. Most IAESTE internships last about 2-3 months and often take place during the summer months. The internships are generally paid; the earnings depend on the typical cost of living of the country. IAESTE takes care of the housing search for the interns and takes care of all necessary formalities. This service is free of charge for students enrolled in Germany. It is made possible by the integration of the IAESTE programme into the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

In order to participate in the IAESTE programme, you must register on the Exchange Platform. Further information on the outgoing procedure at LC Bonn can be found in our Outgoing-Guide for applicants.

Incoming

We are very happy that you have applied for an internship in Bonn. As soon as the employer has accepted your application you are good to go! After that, we are trying our very best to make your stay here as pleasant and enjoyable as possible. During the summer we organise various trips and events for our interns. During your internship, you have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience matching your field of study as well as learn completely new things. At the same time, we would like to introduce you to the German society and culture. Together with us and other interns, you will create unforgettable memories here in Bonn!

On our website, you can find all the information necessary for your stay in Bonn.
