Student internship

Students can complete one or more internships relevant to their studies in each study cycle (i.e. Bachelor, Master, PhD, Diploma). However, it is recommended not to complete a student internship before the third semester.

Graduate internship

Graduate internships can be undertaken after any degree (i.e. Bachelor, Master, PhD, Diploma).

The application for a graduate internship must be made during the degree program. Students must not be enrolled in a further degree program at the start of the graduate internship.

Learning Agreement for Traineeship - Recognition

The content and duration of the internship are agreed in advance in the Learning Agreement for Traineeships. This agreement is concluded between the student, the sending institution and the host institution.

The agreement ensures the recognition of 3 ECTS per month abroad for compulsory internships.
In the interests of equal treatment, a study-related voluntary Erasmus+ internship can be assessed with ECTS. These ECTS can also be credited for free electives on the basis of the Erasmus+ Learning Agreement for internships.
