Foreign Internship


In the first block of the qualification phase, all students take part in fourweek foreign internships at branches of the partnership companies or other international corporations. This internship is an opportunity to experience the professional world, but also requires students, who are mostly under-age, to show independence in managing many unfamiliar situations while they are abroad.

Students receive intensive preparation from their teachers in Political Science / Economics, a crash course in Business English and cultural training for their assigned country. During the internship they are supervised by an adviser in the company, their mentor and pastoral worker in Germany, the manager of the school and possibly by a German employee of the original company. Generally, students live in host families who give an insight into foreign culture and also provide a personal contact.


After coming back to Hansenberg, experiences are evaluated in class both with the teacher for Political Science / Economics and with representatives of the partnership companies. Every student gives a presentation about the internship which influences his or her grade in the first qualification phase.
