FAQ

How do I apply for an internship?
Either for an advertised position or unsolicited. Applicants for an internship must always specify the desired time frame and possible duration. If you submit an unsolicited application, you should also describe your desired field of application (subject area and location) as precisely as possible in the online application form.
At what locations and in which departments can I undertake an internship at GETRAG?
Internships can generally be undertaken in all departments and at all locations. Check here for the positions available. Alternatively, please feel free to submit an unsolicited application.
Do you offer internships at short notice?
Applications for advertised internships should reach us at least three months before the internship start date. For unsolicited applications, please apply four to six months in advance. This allows us time to organise a placement within your desired department to provide a benefit to both sides - you and the respective team. Naturally, we make every effort to accommodate requests for an internship at short notice, but generally: the less notice, the more difficult this is.
Can I undertake a compulsory internship or a pre-study internship at GETRAG?
Of course. Applications for compulsory or pre-study internships should also reach us at least 3 months before the internship start date.
I am interested in several internships. How can I apply more than once?
Every applicant can create a personal profile in the online application system and this forms the initial basis for an application. After the first application, you can re-use this profile and adapt it for other internship places.
Can I apply for an internship and a subsequent thesis?
Yes, feel free! Usually, however, the easiest way is to speak with your manager and the HR department during your internship about writing your thesis at GETRAG and agree on the specific topic.
How long do internships at GETRAG last?
Usually 3 - 6 months. If you have a different time period in mind, you should indicate this in your cover letter when you submit your application.
What are the requirements for an internship at GETRAG? What knowledge should I already have?
All enrolled students are permitted to undertake an internship with us. Any other requirements will depend on the discipline and the department. For a pre-study internship, you just need to have graduated from high school.
Does GETRAG also offer internships abroad?
We occasionally offer places abroad, too. In the case of an unsolicited application, you should convince us of your “good reasons” for an internship abroad. Details of your direct contact person can be found here.
Can I apply for an internship and a subsequent thesis?
Yes, feel free! Usually, however, the easiest way is to speak with your manager and the HR department during your internship about writing your thesis at GETRAG and agree on the specific topic.
Does GETRAG allocate topics for a thesis? Or can I suggest my own?
The students have to submit topics for their theses. GETRAG does not allocate topics in this respect. In the case of an unsolicited application, please submit your topic suggestion 6 months before the desired start date.
At what locations and in which departments can I apply for a thesis?
Generally, it is possible to write a thesis in all departments and at all of our locations.
