The compulsory internship in a subject-relevant area also lays the foundation for a professional future after graduation through practical experience.
As part of a mentoring system , the students are personally accompanied and advised throughout their studies. Studying abroad is not mandatory, but is still recommended and can ideally be completed in the third semester.
An internship of at least six weeks for professional orientation is integrated into the course.
