An internship in France
The end-of-study internship: how does it work?
Foreign students are no exception to this rule. For students who are not members of the European Union, you will need to obtain a Temporary Work Permit (TWA) from the Departmental Directorate of Work and Employment. The university provides internship agreements that must be signed by the host organization, the university, and sometimes an internship supervisor. Internships generally last between 2 and 6 months, and are paid as soon as the trainee completes more than 2 months.
The minimum pay in 2018 is 577 euros per month. Please note that the companies hosting you as an intern are obliged to pay half of your transport costs: petrol if you take the car, public transport, etc.
How to find an internship ?
For a foreign student, you will often be asked to master French well, so be sure of your language skills before committing yourself! Your university can help you find an internship or you can consult these few sites that offer many internship opportunities.
The advantages and disadvantages of an internship in France
Pay is both an advantage and a disadvantage: as a student, it is always nice to receive a salary at the end of the month, but the 577 euros monthly does not allow many outings… There are often rumours that the trainee is given only ungrateful and uninteresting tasks to do, but this is no longer really relevant, quite the contrary! Trainees are given more and more responsibilities and enrich their culture and knowledge through the internship.
