European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN): Technical Student Programme

Allgemeines Anliegen des Stipendiums

There’s no better way to learn than on-the-job. When that job happens to be in a world-famous organisation and centre of scientific excellence, even better. If you’re an undergraduate in Applied Physics, Engineering or Computing and are looking for a practical training period or a place to complete your final project, you could spend 4 to 12 months at CERN during the course of your studies (Bachelor or Master). An extension of up to a maximum of 14 months may be given.

It’s more than work experience. In fact, it’s a student programme like nowhere else on Earth.
