16 The TU Ilmenau International School does not only promote foreign students before and during their study in Germany, it also encourages Ilmenau students who wish to study abroad. The university is strongly interested in ensuring that the students complete an academic stay or an internship abroad during their studies. The service offered by the International School includes the provision of advice and guidance to the students, support in finding study places or internships, the linguistic and intercultural preparation as well as financial support, for example by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD). To fulfil these tasks, the TU Ilmenau International School maintains two offices: the International Office (www.tu-ilmenau. de/en/tu-ilmenau-international-school-de/structure/international office), which coordinates the international exchange, and the LEONARDO-Office of Thuringia (www.tu-ilmenau.de/ en/tu-ilmenau-international-school-de/structure/leonardo), which promotes industrial placements abroad. The LEONARDO office, which is domiciled at the TU Ilmenau, is the central contact point for students of all Thuringian universities who are looking for an internship in Europe. It supports students just as graduates in finding a place in an industrial company or research center throughout Europe. In addition, it provides the students with the financial means necessary for doing an internship abroad.
