Yes, because the IAW’s internship programme is supported by the Baden-Württemberg State Ministry (The Danube Region Strategy), the German Chamber of Commerce, and part of the costs are covered by the company where the internship takes place.

Since we are located in the Federal State Baden-Württemberg (Stuttgart, Brigachtal, Freiburg, Leinfelden-Echterdingen, Korntal), we cooperate only with IT companies from this region. 

Yes. The internship usually lasts 12 months. If the intern has learned the new technologies faster and has gained independence in the processing of tasks, then the duration of the internship can be shortened.

Usually 2-4 weeks. This depends on how fast the IT companies that received your application analyze it and take a decision.
