TECH internships in Finland

On this page you can find information about internships in Finland and internship support for students of schools of technology (CHEM, ELEC, ENG, SCI).

TECH students (CHEM, ELEC, ENG, SCI) of Aalto University may receive support for internships in public sector organizations in Finland, and embassy and permanent representation internships abroad, as well as non-profit organization internships during their studies.

This support is allocated to students via internship vouchers. It is not necessary to have a placement ready when you apply for a voucher. We recommend you time your internship for the summer. Please note that the working language in many public sector organisations is Finnish / Swedish.

Your employer pays your salary regularly during the internship and bills the university after the internship is finished. The support equals to 1800€ for a three month internship and 1200€ for a two month internship.

Please note that you should apply for a voucher only if you are genuinely interested in an internship in the public sector.
