The Novartis Institutes for BioMedical Research (NIBR) also provide students with the opportunity to gain real-world disease research experience at a global biotech company. Their internship programs allow students to design and conduct their own project with the support of a BR scientist. They also offer a Postbaccalaureate Research InternShip & Mentoring (PRISM) Program, an intensive 2-year research and professional development experience at BR in Cambridge, Massachusetts or Emeryville, California.
In the UK, international students are allowed to do internships along with their studies. The student visa allows them to do part-time jobs for up to 20 hours per week along with their studies which they can utilize for doing internships. During summer breaks, the limit is extended.
In Germany, students can apply for an internship place in a hospital. The application process requires a cover letter, CV, and actual certificate of enrollment. Students can apply in every hospital they want in Germany.
It’s important to note that the application process and eligibility criteria for these internships vary from company to company and country to country. Therefore, it’s recommended to check the specific requirements of each program before applying.
