Internships abroad  and getting work experience

    Doing a traineeship and intern abroad

    What are reasons to choose an international internship?

    • You gain new experiences. For example, for the first time you are without your family or friends in another country for several months. You are going to live for a longer period of time in a different place, in a different culture. You can suddenly do new things, from diving on coral reefs, to multi-day jungle trips or living in a city with millions of people!
    • You experience what it is like to be in a completely new environment. You learn what it is like to live somewhere else, find your way in a new city, observe how you arrange transport, do the shopping and communicate with each other. You notice that life is different because the climate is different. You also learn a lot about how you respond to these types of changes. Are you adapting as easily as you expected? Or do some things prove to be difficult to get used to?
    • Your degree of independence grows enormously. You are completely on your own two feet. You will often cook for yourself in your own apartment. And you meet new people everywhere, where you live, your internship, etc.
    •  In many cases you will also learn a new language or, for example, improve your English.
    • For some studies, an international internship is a 'must'. International business or tourism students often go on an internship abroad at least once, but sometimes you can also do your graduation internship abroad.
    • Working interculturally. You will find that working is very different from traveling in another country! The work culture can be very different - from very practical (working hours) and communication (direct or very indirect) to more cultural aspects (for example the relevance of hierarchy in the organization).
    • An international internship often helps to distinguish yourself from others. As all the points above indicate, you have not only gained many additional experiences in independence, intercultural communication and collaboration, but you have often also built up a lot of self-knowledge.


    Various internship possibilities for international students in the Netherlands

    Various internship possibilities for international students in the Netherlands


    It is relatively easier for Dutch speaking students to find good internships. The language is always going to be a major factor for English-speaking students trying to find an internship in the Netherlands. There are internships for those with no knowledge of Dutch at all but you will certainly enhance your prospects if you make the effort to learn at least a little of the language. And the more Dutch you speak, the better your prospects will be! If your school in your own country doesn’t have any contacts in the Netherlands to find you an internship, there are several internship agencies which can match you to a suitable company in the Netherlands. Have a look at the organizations below
