Frequently Asked Questions

I would like an internship and I want to develop my final thesis at one of the branch plants in Kvasiny or Vrchlabí. How do I apply?

The application process is the same for all ŠKODA plants. Please follow the instructions found in the “How to apply” section.

I am writing a term paper, could you find me an advisor to help me develop it?

Given time and resource constraints, we can only provide advisors to students for their bachelor’s, master’s, or doctoral thesis. You can find information which might be useful for your term paper on our website or in ŠKODA AUTO annual reports.

Because of my study schedule, I cannot be physically at the internship five days a week. Can I still apply for an internship at ŠKODA AUTO?

At ŠKODA, we are well aware of university duties and thus, most of our projects or topics are not so terribly time-consuming. Five-day a week attendance in specialized areas is only necessary when collaborating on certain projects. In the case of final theses, it is also possible to collaborate through consultation.

I am interested in an internship at ŠKODA AUTO, but I don’t live nearby and I cannot commute daily.

It might be possible to arrange accommodations at our residence facilities in Mladá Boleslav for the duration of the internship period. However, space is limited.

Will I receive a certificate of completion at the end of the internship?

Yes, at the end of the internship, you will receive a certificate of completion.

How does the admissions process work?

First, you choose an internship project / topic for your thesis which suits your requirements and expertise. Sign up through the ŠKODA AUTO recruitment system and attach your formatted CV. We will then send you a link to our language assessment and then you will have a brief phone interview with our recruiter. You may finally be contacted by our specialized division and receive and invitation to another phone personal interview.

How should I proceed when I know the outcome of the admission procedure?

If your application for admission is successful, we will contact you and arrange all of the formal details. One week before your internship starts, you will be asked to sign the contract via email. If you were not successful in your application, please revise your application and apply for any other currently offered internships or thesis projects. We will be happy to assist you in choosing another option.

Is the internship paid?

Yes, in case of bachelor’s and college study the reimbursement is 120 CZK per hour, in case of masters’ courses it is 140 CZK/hr. Nevertheless, processing final theses only through consultation is without further compensation.

Can I find a temporary job at ŠKODA AUTO?

We don’t offer temporary jobs in production plants.
