Insurance and financial issues
Because the internship constitutes an integral part of the study program, your student’s health insurance will be continued during that time. Regarding accident insurance, it is important to sign an internship contract – in that way, as an employee, you will be insured adequately through the enterprise.
Depending on the agreed upon contract, it is possible that you will receive expense allowance. For example, interns in some municipal or private forest enterprises or in the Lower Saxon forestry services have received such financial support in the past. Please make sure ahead of time whether such a possibility exists in your internship enterprise.
