What you can expect

We offer a number of internships that let you profit throughly of your strengths and put your theoretical knowledge into practice. As a true member of the team, you will be integrated into all work processes. You will get to know structures and procedures and thus get a first-hand experience of the culture at Audi. You will be assisted personally during your entire internship – by a supervisor from your department and by the HR Marketing team. To benefit from your internship to the fullest, we provide you with the opportunity to explore our competencies at Audi Production. Through a factory tour and special tours in the wind tunnel, crash hall and more, you can learn even more about our productions’ processes. Occupying an influential role in our team, you will have the chance to learn more about other areas of the company. Fostering  the win-win experience of all interns, you may also participate at the “From interns to interns” event, where you could share your thoughts, learnt lessons and impression of your internship.

If you are a non-German citizen, please submit a copy of your passport with your application and, if available, your residence permit including the additional page.

Can I do a voluntary internship?
An internship at Audi can be compulsory or voluntary, or a combination of both. The minimum duration of an internship of any kind is eight weeks.
Is it possible to start an internship on a different date from the one stated in the job announcement?

In the job announcement for internships, the first of the month or “starting immediately” is always mentioned as starting date. Nevertheless various starting dates are feasible each month. The final advent of your internship can be agreed upon in consultation with the department.

Please indicate in your cover letter or online questionnaire when you would be available for an internship.

Can I also do an internship abroad?
It is always possible to apply directly for an internship at one of our locations abroad. You can find all available addresses of our worldwide locations under Audi International.
Is it possible to combine an internship with a thesis at Audi?

It is not possible to write a graduation thesis on an Audi topic while performing an internship at Audi.

You are, however, welcome to apply for a thesis at Audi after your internship.

Can I apply for a job advertised as an internship in order to write a graduation thesis on this topic?

No, this is not possible because an internship has different content and aims than a thesis.

You can find information on graduation theses at Audi under the heading “Graduation thesis” at the following link:


How much does an internship pay?

All academic interns receive 1,447.43 euros gross/month.
