German Internship Program

The German Internship Program is an initiative jointly launched by China and Germany, aiming to strengthen bilateral relations, especially people-to-people exchanges, cooperation, and friendship, by promoting international internships for young people from both countries. We serve companies that are recruiting German interns through this project, while also helping German interns who wish to intern in China find suitable positions.

Who can participate in this project?

If you are a German national aged between 18 and 35, currently studying or recently graduated, then this project could be an excellent opportunity for you. The program is designed for students registered in German schools, universities, technical and vocational schools, who have completed at least four semesters towards their Bachelor's, Master's, or Doctorate degrees. Additionally, graduates with a diploma acquired within the past 12 months in Germany are also eligible to apply.

Why should you consider participating in this project?

For German Interns

First of all, it provides valuable work experience related to your field of study. The internship should reflect an area in which you'll acquire or hold a degree or qualification, allowing you to gain practical knowledge and hands-on skills that will greatly enhance your future career prospects. Moreover, this project offers a unique chance for personal growth and cultural exchange. By working in a foreign company or institution, you will improve your language skills, learn about different cultures, and broaden your horizons. You will also have the opportunity to network with professionals in your industry, building relationships that could help you in your future career.
