Doing an internship abroad is one of the best ways to build your resume and gain a unique experience that will help you develop critical skills for the future. In addition to working in a professional setting, you will be immersed in a new culture and possibly even learn a new language!
When deciding where to do your international internship, you have the world at your feet. So, why choose Budapest? We may be a little biased, but we truly believe Budapest is a great choice. With its stunning architecture, bustling startup culture, and diverse international community, it’s not hard to see why Budapest is one of the best places to do an international internship.
Budapest Is an International City
As more multinational companies choose to open offices in Budapest, the city is becoming increasingly diverse with a lot to offer its international residents. When your workday is over, you will find plenty of events to fill your evenings. Meet up with fellow expats through InterNations events, grab a drink with Budapest’s international community at International Meeting Point, or join Budapest Hikers to explore the region’s green landscapes.
English Is Widely Spoken in Budapest
It’s no secret that one of the best ways to learn a new language is to be fully immersed in it. And that’s why doing an international internship is often an excellent opportunity to pick up a second or third language. However, not all languages were created equal, and Hungarian is arguably one of the toughest languages to learn. While an international internship in Budapest will be a fun excuse to learn a few new words in Hungarian, you will be able to get by with English as it’s widely spoken in this European capital.
A Variety of Companies to Choose From
There is something for everyone in Budapest. When looking for the perfect company to do your international internship with, you can choose from huge multinationals (think Morgan Stanley, IBM, and Bosch) to up-and-coming innovative start-ups (AImotive, Turbine, and Webshippy are all operating out of Budapest). You can gain experience in the tech industry (Microsoft, Huawei), financial services (K&H Bank, GE Capital) or even marketing (hey – that’s exactly what we do!). Whatever your background and expectations, you will have plenty of choices here.
Budapest Is an Affordable City
Budapest has all the charm of a European capital without a European price tag. While local public transportation is relatively cheap (a monthly pass will cost you less than 30 euros), many locals prefer to get around on their own two feet. It’s the perfect excuse to exercise daily with a stunning view of 19th century architecture around every corner. Local markets, restaurants, bars, and coffee shops also offer the best of Hungarian food and drink for affordable prices.
Summertime in Budapest
Doing an international internship is also about immersing yourself in the local culture by participating in unique traditions, festivals, and daily routines. And summertime in Budapest is perfect for just that. With its pleasant weather and warm temperatures, summer is the perfect season to kayak along the Danube, go hiking to discover the natural landscapes around the city, and jog through Margaret Island. When it gets too hot, you can indulge in the local go-to drink and have a glass of fröccs.
