International internships are becoming more and more popular as they provide students with valuable real-life experience during their studies. Various options to do internships in Hungary include:

Dual education

Gaining practical experience in Hungary is provided by dual education, which is a unique system where university students have the chance to spend a few months at different companies or organisations to gain practice. Dual education means that a student is enrolled at a university while completing a traineeship at a company.

Programmes that may include dual education:

  • agriculture 
  • engineering
  • economics 
  • natural sciences
  • information technology

By taking part in this programme, you have the chance to gain some insight into the internal operation of a company and gain experience through professionals of a given field. By the end of your studies you will receive a significant amount of work experience, which will help you start your career and find a job. Information on programmes offered in dual education can be obtained from your university’s website.

Stipendium Hungaricum Internship Opportunities

As a Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holder you are entitled and often even required to participate in an internship opportunity as a prerequisite of your last semester, just before graduating. During the academic year Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship holders are contacted with internship opportunities via newsletters by Tempus Public Foundation with the contribution of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Open internship positions are available at the Alumni Network Hungary website, published by Hungarian companies that are excited to welcome Stipendium Hungaricum students for a specified period of time. The actual listing is available for registered scholarship holders only. The available opportunities are collected and sent to you via newsletters.

Please note, that while the internship opportunity is available for all Stipendium Hungaricum students, participation is not guaranteed. The selection of students depends on an application procedure where you present your CV, academic and professional background and motivation. The participating companies are responsible for the evaluation of your application.
