The Internship Office at the Institute for Education Sciences is responsible for counseling, supervision, and organization of all matters relating to internships as part of degree programs in education sciences. Internships help students to familiarize themselves with an educational work environment and to acquire professional qualifications within the framework of their academic studies. Students enrolled in the Bachelor's Degree Program Education Sciences and Social Work/Adult Education must complete an internship of a minimum of 600 working hours. In general, the internship is taken during the fourth semester of studies, but it can also be divided into periods of a minimum of 6 weeks at the same institution. To allow for greater flexibility, students may also combine part-time and full-time work after prior consultation. Please contact the Internship Office in good time to clarify your individual situation. Students must participate in two colloquiums to prepare and follow up on the internship, which is completed with a reflective report.
To obtain a Bachelor's Degree of Education Social Pedagogy/Pedagogy and General Education Subject, an internship of 810 working hours must be completed. It is usually taken during the fourth semester as a block of six months. During an internship students may change the internship provider's institution once; however, individual periods spent at an institution must not be shorter than six weeks. The internship is combined with an academic field trip seminar and a follow-up colloquium and completed with a reflective report. Services Offered by the Internship Office
