Live abroad and gain the international internship experience you need to get hired in today's increasingly globalized economy. You have your very own set of talents, experiences, and personality traits that no one else can exactly duplicate, but how do you prove that to employers? An internship is a great opportunity to gain work experience and working in a new environment enhances those professional skills with attributes of adaptability and self-reliance. Global Experiences' programs provide the opportunity for participants to have the overseas adventure they want while simultaneously getting the experience they need. It's the best of both worlds!
Global Experiences offers internship programs lasting between 8 and 15 weeks in nearly every career field imaginable. Along with a full-time internship, interns are provided with central accommodation, cultural events and day trips, professional networking events, and on the ground support.
Every detail of our programs is carefully selected based on our years of experience and knowledge of our host locations. An internship should be hands-on, challenging, and eye-opening, right? And living abroad should be exhilarating and fun! We get that. Couple our carefully curated programming with our award winning professional career coaching, and you have an international internship program unlike any other.
The capital of Germany, the largest European nation, Berlin has been at the heart not just of European politics and culture but also world affairs for several centuries. As a city reunified in 1989, it combines a tremendous variety of experiences from fine historical buildings to cutting edge modernism, from exquisite malls to traditional markets, from classical opera to hedonistic techno partying. Berlin is a city full of optimism that epitomizes modern Germany in its forward-thinking and inclusive nature, but without forgetting its historic past.
Berlin stretches out elegantly from its heart by the river Spey to its many different districts, each with their own style and feel. From the classic architecture of Mitte to the urban cool of Kreuzberg, Berlin is a city that has something for everyone. Whilst a large city, the different districts are divided by beautiful parks, lakes, and rivers giving Berlin more bridges than Venice.
Global Experiences is expert in finding internship roles that will allow you to be part of the dynamic business world that is modern Berlin. An internship in Berlin will give you the chance to explore one of the most important cities in Europe with its rich and varied opportunities. Berlin has led the way in creative and design sectors and is increasingly becoming a new technology hub. Many of our internships are with companies looking to develop new ideas or systems for urban societies.
Global Experiences is one of the best internship programs in Berlin and provides you with a tailored internship in your approved career field. Throughout your program, we take you and your fellow interns on social excursions to allow you to experience Berlin and the local culture. You will also have free time during your program to travel on your own. Set yourself apart from your peers with an international internship in Germany.
Housing: Our Berlin program housing is either in shared apartments or in student residences. These are based in central districts.
- Single or double rooms in a shared 3-4 bedroom flat or single rooms in a student residence
- Includes a shared kitchen, wifi, balcony, a washer and dryer
- 24/7 security
- Great communal areas
- Easy access to public transport, shops, and cafes
The flat is shared with other Global Experiences interns and sometimes mixed with other students from local universities. You will take a roommate questionnaire to help us match you with the best flatmates.
