How to find an internship company?
If you want an internship abroad, you need to start looking early to find an internship company. It is your responsibility to find an internship company that suits you.
When you need to find a company, you can for example:
- Search a database for companies abroad - get help from the library
- Ask your internship coordinator to put you in touch with students who have done their internship abroad
- Be inspired and look for information on different websites, for example (only in Danish):
- Danskere i Berlin
- Danske netværk i Oceanien
- Danskere i Sydney
- Use your network, be creative and be inspired by other students’ experiences
When you have a list of potential internship companies, send them a good CV and an application. You will be surprised how effective it is.
The internship coordinator for your programme can give you a list of foreign companies that have previously had students as interns from your programme.
Be aware that there are a number of requirements for an internship company (pdf).
Find additional information for your company on baaa.dk/internship.
