Duration of internship
The internship is for 3 months (calendar month) in India and any request for a shorter tenure will not be eligible. An extension of the internship might be possible if financially supported by the host company.
Timeframe of your stay
Starting dates are generally flexible and settled between swissnex India and the partner company depending on the project and the student’s availability. Start date of the internship can be no later than 1 December 2020. Furthermore, the 3 months are expected to be completed in one go, meaning the time cannot be split into more than one period.
The interns receive a monthly living allowance (salary) INR 65,000, approx. CHF 1’000. This allowance is partly contributed by the supporting university of the intern and the supporting foundations.
