Dresden, Germany

The Dresden Internship Program is for students who have advanced German language skills, as the program combines study and coursework with a professional internship.

After completing the program's eight-week core phase, students spend the final weeks in internships with organizations in the greater Dresden area, working an average of 30 hours a week while also completing coursework at Technische Universität Dresden.
