Over the years, the Junior Year in Munich Program has arranged internships in a wide variety of interest areas, such as marketing, publishing, education, automotive industry, ecology and the environment, health care, e-commerce, government, foreign service, international trade, economic development and urban planning.

Application process

JYM draws upon its many connections in Munich to help students find internships. Students are competing with other university students in Munich for internships. Regardless of our best efforts, internships cannot be guaranteed. It helps, however, to be motivated and submit all materials (e.g., résumés) on time.

When students apply to study abroad, you should indicate on the application that you're interested in an internship. Based on this information, we'll work to identify an internship that matches your interest. JYM will also work with you upon arrival in Germany to help you find internships.

Credit for internships

Students earn credit for academic work associated with the internship   not for the internship experience alone. In order to receive credit for an internship, you must first sign up for JYG 5890 Overseas Internship (three credits). You may do so only if this has been approved by your home school advisor as indicated on their admissions application form or if you provide the academic director with documentation that this has been approved by your home school advisor.

Before credit is awarded for the internship, students must participate in the related course and submit an internship portfolio to the instructor by the end of the semester in which the internship occurred.


Is it possible to have an internship, but not for credit?

Of course! Not everything in life is measured by how many credits you can get for it. Having an internship in Germany can be an incredible experience in its own right and will certainly stand out on your résumé.
