During their degree program students will undergo a practical training for a period of 12 weeks, which should be finished at the beginning of semester 3. This training period may be extended but must be completed at the latest before starting the bachelor’s thesis.
Exemption: Successfully completed vocational education and training (technical or administrative) is generally accepted in lieu of the mandatory practical training.
Further information about the practical training you find here. Link to Regulations of the Practical training.
What we recommend
Since no credits will be awarded for the practical training performed, students are required to seek placements themselves and to implement the training in their degree study.
Experience has shown though that it proves extremely difficult to integrate the practical training of 12 weeks into your course of studies, be it in one go or gradually, without delaying the program. We therefore recommend completing the entire or at least the major part of the training before commencing the degree program.
After graduating from school the majority of prospective students have a gap of 4 to 5 months before starting their studies, which can be used to undergo the practical training beforehand.
