Student perspectives

Each year a bunch of students from our university is chosen and sent to Bentley Motors in order to do our internship abroad and gain some valuable experience.

If I had to evaluate my stay in Athens, the words I could use would be amazing and unforgettable. Not only that, I met with great friendly people from many parts of the world, and I also learned about Greek culture.

My daily task was to negotiate discounts with suppliers and ensure a steady flow of orders in the internal system called Workflow.

One of the main reasons why I decided  on Škoda Auto University was the possibility for extensive internships, not only at Škoda Auto a.s. but also abroad with companies such as VW, Audi, Seat and Bentley.

ŠKODA AUTO University offers a lot of options for an exchange semester abroad. As a result, it was not easy to decide which university is the most interesting.  I decided to study at the University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria.

From 10th February till 25th July 2014 I had a great opportunity to be a part of the Purchasing department in Bentley motors Ltd. in a small town called Crewe. Crewe is situated in the north-west part of Great Britain.

I would highly recommend working in Bentley, because it is a unique opportunity to test school knowledge in practice and six months is long enough to get to know all the processes in procurement.
A great experience for me was the opportunity to become independent in a foreign country, use my foreign language skills in everyday communication and last but not least to make many new friends and contacts across Europe.
During my internship I was responsible for all documentation related to sales and car orders from the German production plant based on orders from dealers, so called Porsche Centers.
The opportunity to spend several months in SVW as an intern was and will be a wonderful experience, life event and invaluable opportunity to gain world-class views while working in an international team.
