Internship (Work Placement)

As part of the CDE programme, students must complete a compulsory internship related to the programme comprising 8 weeks, which is comparable to full-time employment and corresponding to 12 ECTS points (see curriculum). The obligatory internship typically is conducted in blocked mode (1 or 2 periods) outside of course (semester) periods, but also can be completed as equivalent part-time activity. Students register for the course 651.INT. As basis of the approval of study credit (ECTS), a written internship certificate needs to be submitted to course teachers after completion of the internship.

Students are particularly welcome to contact following institutions – EM CDE associated partners – with their internship applications:
