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 in PLUSonline for the course 651.INT in semester 2. 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; please read further details in steps to consider at the bottom.
