Unfortunately, we can only offer a limited number of internships, so not all applicants will receive a place.

Mandatory internships for university students

The Munich Documentation Center offers university students studying a relevant subject an opportunity to do an internship with us.

We will review all applications received by these deadlines and then invite candidates we consider suitable to attend a personal interview. For organizational reasons, some months may elapse between submitting your application and starting your internship. We therefore advise you to apply as early as possible.
