We are always looking for committed people – like you!
Internships at our German sites help you demonstrate your commitment to your studies and put what you have learnt into practice. Bayer’s German sites offer internships for students from a wide variety of disciplines.
We offer two types of internship: general work experience and course-related internships as a required part of science, technology and economics degrees. We offer clerkships and practical years for pharmacy students and internships for law students. Detailed information on IT internships you find here.
Internships should last a minimum of 4 weeks and a maximum of 1 year.
- We expect students applying for course-related internships and practical placements to help them write their dissertations to have excellent examination grades.
- Applicants from outside Germany should have good English or German language skills.
- To enable us to plan internships, we need to receive your application about 6 months before your proposed starting date.
