Practical relevance plus professional contacts

Practical training is an integral part of the Bachelor's degree programmes. Depending on the degree programme, it is completed in companies, institutions, educational establishments, clinics, surgeries, etc. outside the university. This allows you to apply your theoretical knowledge in practice and also gives you the opportunity to make professional contacts. You can find the basics of the internships in the study and examination regulations of the respective degree programmes.

Practical semester

The internship in the practical semester usually comprises 80 working days and serves to put into practice and deepen the knowledge gained so far in the degree programme. In this advanced stage of the programme, students are required to work on projects in the specialist departments of the internship companies.
