During your bachelor’s degree program, you will expand on your education in a specific discipline by completing a professional internship. This gives you an opportunity to get to know the requirements of professional practice early on, apply the subject-specific knowledge you have gained in your studies in specific work contexts, and review and further develop your wishes and goals for your future career.
You are responsible for finding a suitable internship on your own. The Career Service and the internship representatives at your institute or department will help you through this process by providing information and advice and posting internship openings that may be of interest to you.
At Freie Universität, a professional internship is a required element of general professional skills (Allgemeine Berufsvorbereitung, ABV). It is supplemented by a ten-hour internship colloquium. The internship and colloquium together make up the “internship module.” You register for this module via Campus Management.
The number of credits you earn for completing the internship module is geared toward the length of the internship. The ABV study and examination regulations (in German) distinguish between the central internship module and the international internship module.
