The language of instruction is mostly German, but many higher education institutions teach in English as well.
Gaining work experience during the studies is a compulsory part of many university degrees, which is mostly done by doing an internship program offered by German or international companies. German students are very open to cultural exchange and international work experience. They are interested in foreign countries, mostly English-speaking countries.
After the completion of their degree (Bachelor or Masters) many German graduate students look to paid work experience programs – often overseas – to gain work experience. The offer of a temporary contract (eg. up to 36 months) in Australia is attractive to German graduates and can assist them to find a job back in Germany or remain in Australia to continue their careers as a sponsored employee. German companies are also very interested in employing German graduates who have gained international work experience through an internship.
German students are increasingly expected by their education institutions to gain work experience within the scope of their studies – preferably abroad. Most of the time students are responsible for organising their internship themselves.
German companies offer paid internship programs, which enable the localstudents to cover a part or all of their living costs in Germany."
