What is the Office for Industrial Links doing and what does it offer for students

The Office for Industrial Links (OIL) helps with questions related to the internship in Germany.

We offer CV and Cover Letter checks for Students and Alumni.

We check if the internship meets the GJU requirements (not the relation to your major).

We provide Students with lists of German companies who have taken GJU students as interns previously.

We assist Students in case they cannot find an internship.

We accept the internship documents (report and certificate) after finishing the internship.

My internship company in Germany wants me to include a Privacy Statement in my internship report, what is it and where can I find one?

A privacy statement (or secrecy agreement) is like a legally binding promise you make to the company of not publishing any of the information within the report or make the content accessible to anybody but your supervisor at the university who needs to approve your internship. According to our internship report instructions you would need to include it in your report if a company requires it.

You can find many examples for privacy statements online and often companies would have their own sample. If they do please use theirs, otherwise you could use the one below:

Privacy Statement
