The Region

Karlsruhe is a city located in the south-west of Germany, close to the French boarder.
The city has a mild climate with 1798 hours of sunshine a year, 102 km of bicycle path, around 900 hectares of green space and more than 135 cultural institutions and is also home to the federal constitutional court of Germany.
So as you see – there is a lot to discover in the city with the fan-shaped layout!



We arrange paid internships for Karlsruhe students of natural and engineering sciences.
The income of an IAESTE internship depends on the typical cost of living in the country. For internships outside of the EU, you will usually receive additional support through a travel allowance from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
Most internships last 2-3 months and take place in the summer months; however, there is everything from 4 – 52 weeks and all seasons.
Where to go abroad? You can find the IAESTE member countries on the official IAESTE website by scrolling down to Member Countries.
