CEPA Europe - Customized Educational Programmes Abroad: Internships in Europe
In collaboration with universities, colleges and professors CEPA Europe develops for-credit internship programs for student groups mainly in Germany and France (other European countries upon request). CEPA Europe arranges internship placements in companies or institutions which fit the personal interests of students, academic goals and background as closely as possible. Housing assistance, language preparation and cultural immersion courses are also arranged for each internship placement. CEPA Europe Internship Programs usually start with a two-week intensive language course, followed by an orientation and cultural immersion courses which cover all aspects of living, studying and working in the specific country. For students without prior language skills, intensive language courses from 4-8 weeks can be arranged.
