Personal Fit: The professional internship programme abroad!

You’ve come to the right place if you are looking for an internship in South America which exactly matches your interests and in addition covers all the requirements relevant for an internship semester or a specialized internship abroad.

Within our Personal Fit Programme we organize internships in Argentina in just about any area and which are suited for your course of studies: No matter if you are interested in project management in the field of aeronautical engineering, research in a laboratory for Life Science or working in a law firm.

Internship programme

Description of the internship programme:

The Personal Fit Programme is the most specific one within our placement of internships. In your own words you can describe in which areas you would like to work, which kind of institutions are relevant for you and which departments you are interested in. Moreover, you can choose any city in Argentina as your internship location.

Placement procedure

Within the Personal Fit Programme you may give very specific indications for your internship in Argentina. In order to meet your wishes, we research suitable firms and institutions in Argentina. We then contact them and forward your CV, your data (area of work, duration and start of the internship) and possible requirements for the acknowledgement of your internship abroad. The institutions internally consult whether they are able to reasonably integrate you as an intern considering your wishes and the requirements your internship has to fulfil. We will forward any positive feedback in the form of individual internship offers to you!

Obligatory internship abroad

For the acknowledgement of an obligatory internship or an internship semester the respective university’s requirements need to be fulfilled. If the requirements that the internship has to meet are particularly complicated, the Personal Fit Programme enables you to explain any requests in detail in your application. Thereafter, NICE only provides you with internship offers that fulfil your indicated requirements.

All prices are published on our website; this is how you can easily add up the costs and calculate the total price of your individual package.
Additionally, you should take your flight and sufficient insurance protection into account. Low-priced insurance packages are offered for example at the student card ISIC. Cheap flight deals you find on skyscanner, kayak or statravel where you can quickly and easily compare prices.
When thinking of Argentina, Buenos Aires and Tango come immediately to your mind. This is why it may be surprising that the most popular internship city is Córdoba: Argentina’s second largest city offers a lot of cultural activities, entertainment, a great surrounding area and above all it is less anonymous than Buenos Aires. Being the most important university town of the country, the city is very young and it is much easier to get into contact with locals.
In case you attend a Spanish Course at NICE before starting with the internship, you will definitely get to know Córdoba because this is where our headquarters and our Spanish school are located. A combination of a Spanish course in Córdoba and an internship in another city can be conveniently and simply arranged.
Of course, we also arrange compulsory internships and internship semesters. Experience has shown that there are some particularities in comparison to voluntary internships:

  • Since every university has specific conditions that need to be fulfilled for the acceptance of an internship, you have the possibility to indicate them in the online registration. We will consider these criteria for the search, in order to only offer you internships that meet the guidelines.
  • Having received an internship offer that suits you, you can present it at your university before formally accepting it.
  • In case of a compulsory internship it is often necessary that the university concludes frame contracts and instruction agreements with the internship company. You can hand in these documents to NICE and we will make sure the company signs them and that you receive everything on time.
Our service is also open to high school graduates looking for occupational orientation. If you want to do a pre-study internship, you simply tell us all requirements that need to be met. We will take them into account in the organisation of your internship and assist you when issuing all the necessary documents for the subsequent placement recognition.
Just like you are now, we once were students and we know this phenomenon! This is why we are keen to offer our high quality services for affordable prices.
To achieve this, we use amongst others only a minimal percentage of our revenues on marketing.
Even when planning your stay we support you to find economical solutions to make your dream come true. This includes, for example, choosing your flight connection and the travel insurance. Also, you can apply for funding with our support.
If you want to select cost-consciously the internship city, we recommend you to avoid the capital and Patagonia, because living costs there are significantly higher than in the other Argentine regions.
In Argentina the majority of internships offered to foreigners are unfortunately unpaid. The reason for this is that paid internships are considered to be regular work places – and those require a work visa. Applying for such a visa is not only a complicated procedure but also time and money consuming. Hence, most companies are not willing to offer paid internships to foreigners.
For this reason we recommend you to rather apply for scholarships or to economise: For the application for fundings, of course, we will support you in issuing the necessary documents.
And to save costs we assist you with advice on choosing your flight connection or travel insurance. In addition, you can plan your stay cost-consciously by avoiding the capital and Patagonia as your internship city.
Unfortunately not, even though some people will say so. Only very few people speak and understand English in Argentina. Having good Spanish skills is therefore a very important prerequisite for a successful internship.
Since we organise only high quality internships, we need to guarantee to the companies that the interns dispose of the required Spanish level. Accordingly, we will take care that the intern will be able to communicate in the company and that he/she will be able to understand his/her superiors and colleagues.
Good Spanish language skills are THE requirement for a successful internship in Argentina. In order to be sufficiently prepared before the beginning of the internship, interns with no or only basic Spanish knowledge attend an intensive Spanish course (“Intensive Course Plus”) at the NICE Spanish school in Córdoba. Beginners usually need on average six weeks of this course type. Correspondingly, students who already have some knowledge need less time.
Having filled in our Spanish test we be able to give you an estimation of how many weeks of the “Intensive Course Plus” you need in order to attain the required Spanish level.
