Internship and lab visits

Internships and lab visits: External visitors

The Berlin School of Mind and Brain (M&B) is an institution for graduate education, research, and training at Master and doctoral level. The school's more than 350 members work in more than 80 labs and research groups at six universities (Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, Technische Universität Berlin, Universität Magdeburg, Universität Leipzig, Universität Potsdam) and at Max Planck institutes in the greater Berlin metropolitan area.

(1) Generally, students cannot come to our school for a lab or research visit without a host (if the host is a doctoral candidate, the visit must be endorsed by a professor or group leader).

(2) To find a suitable lab or research group for their internships or guest visits, applicants must contact the most relevant labs / working groups / professors directly. The school does not provide information on procedures and availability centrally.

(3) Required status: Visitors generally cannot come for a visit without being matriculated at a university or without being in a university research position. Exceptions will have to be discussed directly with the host and his/her university institute.
