The intern works closely with the Executive Director in the Campus OWL office in the German House in New York and is responsible for a variety of research, administrative and creative functions.

Exchange

Each year hundreds of international students come to the Campus OWL universities from partner universities around the world. Studying abroad for a semester is a great experience from which you benefit in many ways, both personally and professionally.

Direct exchange students must be nominated by one of the partner universities. The first step is therefore to apply for an exchange place in the international office at your home university. After successful nomination you will be contacted by the OWL partner university.
