Description

Elective course


This course is designed to provide students with an opportunity for experiential learning, while working in a German business/organization. Integrating their previously acquired academic knowledge with practical workplace experience at the host company, enables them to work in Austrian, German, Swiss companies, or businesses with strong ties to German-speaking countries. Students may intern at any point between Years 3 and 4, either fulltime during the lecture-free period or part-time during the semester (minimum of 120 hours). Preparatory activities and assessments include composing a CV and a cover letter in German, a written report, and a presentation at the end of the internship. Students are asked to make their own internship arrangements with an organization of their choice in liaison with the course/internship coordinator. Students must submit an English description of their proposed internship with an acceptance letter from the host company, for consideration to the Course Coordinator.
