Search for a internship school

In principle, you can complete your school internship anywhere in Germany. The internship school should cover the variety of vocational schools in Germany with their different educational programs (ideally from introductory vocational class to vocational high school) and offer your vocational specialization as well as your subject.

You must establish contact with the schools on your own. There will be no assignment by the university. We recommend that you do not start looking for schools too late, but at the latest at the beginning of the preparatory seminar. To assist you, we provide a school list with contact information below.
