About us


Our IAESTE committee in Bonn is formed by both students and  International Office workers of the University of Bonn. All of us love to help others in the opportunity to make new experiences. We work diligently to ensure that any student 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. These can be either voluntary or mandatory internships for your studies! Furthermore, we look for accommodation for our foreign guests, organize 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 really enjoy getting in contact with you and foreign students, and it’s the great memories, funny moments and new experiences that motivate us each semester. We do this work because we are committed to intercultural exchange and want to promote it – just like you!

Outgoing

The IAESTE Local Committee Bonn arranges internships abroad for students of the Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn in a diverse number of fields, and these can be either voluntary or mandatory (Pflichtpraktika). There are positions in the private sector as well as at research institutes and universities. Most IAESTE internships last about 2-3 months and often take place during the summer months. (Although application is possible all year round!) The internships are generally paid; the earnings depend on the typical cost of living of the host country. Besides these, German students also have the possibility of receiving additional support from the DAAD in the form of Fahrkostenzuschüsse, as well as Erasmus+ for students going to a country within the EU.

When students arrive to the place of their internship, the IAESTE committee in the host country takes care of the housing search for them, as well as other necessary formalities. This service is free of charge for students enrolled in Germany. It is made possible by the integration of the IAESTE program into the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).

In order to participate in the IAESTE program, 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. Alternatively, you can download our Application requirements checklist with all the important information in a short format.
