Read about allowances and visa arrangements

Internship allowance

Your full-time monthly allowance depends on your education level:

  • Vocational – €400
  • Bachelor – €600
  • Masters – €600
Travel allowance

Interns are eligible to apply for a travel and housing allowance. If you live at a minimum of 10.1 kilometers from ASML, you will receive an allowance for your commute, with a maximum of 20 kilometers per day (one-way) on the day that you actually travel to ASML.


If you use public transportation (second class), ASML will cover the cost of your return commute from your registered home address to your registered ASML work location through the Turnn app.


You are not eligible to use Turnn if:

  • You are entitled to a student travel product that allows you to travel for free on weekdays. You are also ineligible if you have selected to use this product for free travel on weekends, since you can adjust this to allow for free weekday travel during your internship. You are also ineligible if you choose to temporarily stop this product during the internship.
  • You live in Belgium or Germany, because the Turnn app is inaccessible there.
Housing allowance

You must meet the following requirements in order to receive housing allowance:

  • You live 100 kilometers or more away from our global headquarters in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, and are able to show a rental contract for your place of residence.
  • You are willing to rent new accommodations within a 30 km radius of ASML while you keep renting your current residence. You’ll need to be able to show a rental contract for your new accommodation.
Visa arrangements

If you live outside of the European Union and aren’t studying in the Netherlands, we’ll help you arrange your visa and cover the associated costs. To qualify, your internship must last at least six months.

Internships application process

The selection process may differ slightly for each internship assignment, but will generally follow these four phases.

1. Apply

Take your time to create a well-presented, relevant and clear CV and motivation letter that show why you want to work at ASML. You’ll get a confirmation email once we’ve received your application, and we’ll let you know the status of your application within two weeks.

2. HireVue video interview

The first selection phase is an online, pre-recorded interview. If you are selected for this phase, you’ll be invited to record your answers to a few pre-determined questions via the tool HireVue. We’re looking to learn more about the real you.

3. Interview

We’ll review your video within seven business days and if you’re chosen, you’ll be invited for an interview. An interview is great opportunity for us to get to know you but also for you to get to know us and gain some insight into what it’s like to be part of ASML.

4. Job offer

A few days after the interview, we’ll inform you if you’ve been selected to start your internship at ASML.


Contact our internship coordinators for more information about our graduation projects and internships in the Netherlands. We are unable to accept open applications.
