Vacation school and laboratory courses

Entry Opportunities for University Students
Forschungszentrum Jülich

The scientific institutes organise - often together with universities - topic- and subject-specific vacation schools and laboratory courses. Students can thus get an early impression of working in a multidisciplinary research institution and deepen their theoretical and experimental knowledge in compact courses. Since in many cases the vacation schools are also in demand internationally, there is the opportunity to exchange ideas and network with young researchers from other countries.

Information for university students from abroad

Support programmes help international students to gain their first research experience in Germany at an early stage. Depending on the country of origin and place of study, it may be necessary to obtain approval from the Federal Employment Agency for employment at Forschungszentrum Jülich. Students from abroad are supported by the International Advisory Services of Forschungszentrum Jülich in all matters relating to immigration and social law.
