There is an overall list of companies where previous students of our Master Program have stayed. Many of them, especially the German students, went abroad for their research internships. This information is password protected. If you are a current student feel free to contact us to access information: silke.venker(at)

We do hold contact to former students who now offer places for research internships, e.g. in New Zealand and USA. If you are interested, please ask for more information.

Students are encouraged to seek research internships independently of university assistance so that they become familiar with job searching. However we will assist you as best as we can in finding a convenient place to do your research internship.
