Best Dutch companies for internship
An internship will give you an opportunity to compare theory with practice. In the Netherlands many organizations hire interns and it is not so difficult to get real responsibilities in addition to working towards your learning objectives.
If you are currently studying in the Netherlands, you can do an internship on the basis of your EU citizenship or valid residence permit for the purpose of the study. It is also possible to do an internship in the Netherlands when you are studying in another country.
Non-EU citizens can apply for an ‘Orientation year highly educated persons’ after receiving a diploma. During this year, you are allowed to do an internship and/or have a paid or voluntary job.
Generally, internships in the Netherlands are not obliged to be paid. However, most Dutch companies do offer some form of compensation. Some companies will also cover your travel expenses, depending on how far you live.
