International student organizations are an important point of contact for students looking for international experiences. The subject-specific umbrella organizations operate across Germany and are often connected with the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). At most bigger universities, you can find local chapters that you can get in touch with, depending on your subject. There, you can get information on ongoing traineeship programs, application processes and possible financial assistance.
