Interns live in single rooms in an apartment arranged by Viessmann.
Interns grocery shop and cook on their own; no meals are included in the program fee.Review the estimate for the amount of money you should bring to cover meals in the Full Cost of Participation worksheet (linked in Step III of the application checklist). It is not reasonable to think that you can save money by spending less than the food estimate provided by the OIE! This estimate is meant to be the BARE MINIMUM in relation to your particular destination!
Mode of transportation:
This program itinerary is tentative and subject to change.
Students work 40 hours per week during the 8 week period and have 4 vacation days.
Program dates for 2019 are TBD.
|Legal Entry & Stay||
A visa is an endorsement or stamp placed by officials of a foreign country on a U.S. passport that makes it possible for the bearer to visit that foreign country. U.S. citizens in possession of a valid passport do not need to apply for a visa to enter Germany to complete an internship.
U.S. citizens planning to intern in Germany do need to apply for and receive a Residence Permit (work permit) PRIOR TO entering Germany. The Residence Permit allows you to legally engage in an activity other than tourism while in Germany. Students who have completed the program application process and have received a seat on the program have also completed all paperwork necessary to apply for a Work Permit. The UW Oshkosh OIE will forward the appropriate paperwork to the German host company for processing.
