International practical work experience during and after studies is no longer an exception but has become quite normal. To gain practical experience for themselves and for their career, many students and graduates travel abroad every year to different countries of the world, irrespective of their courses of studies.

We present promotion and application agencies for traineeships abroad as well as promotion programmes, and we provide bibliographical references, useful web addresses, and practical tips for finding a traineeship.
