Profession list

Administration internship

You want to complete your mandatory internship in an administration authority? Nothing is easier! The State of Lower Saxony offers you two possibilities.

Individual internship

In your individual internship you will get to know one authority. You are part of a group and introduce your knowledge and your abilities in the work routine. This is the best way if you already know which specialist area your heart is beating for (e.g. environment, Europe, or taxes). 

Inform yourself on the websites of the State authorities, whether such an internship can be offered, or apply proactively by making contact with the HR department. The colleagues are looking forward to you!

Group internship

The group internship is organized every year in the lecture-free time of the summer semester by the Ministerium für Inneres und Sport [Ministry of Internal Affairs and Sports] in cooperation with several State authorities, and gives you an insight into the wide variety of the State Administration. 

In small working groups of approximately 25 persons you will get to know different authorities in the region of Hanover, and you will get an overview of tasks and legal questions in the State Administration (lectures, group work, visits). 

Respectively in spring, you will find the event program - which also contains information on contents and application opportunities - on this page and on the websites of the Leibniz University Hanover and the University Osnabrück. Due to the high demand, the places will be awarded within the framework of a selection procedure. We are looking forward to your application – also online!
