Mandatory or voluntary internship?

A general distinction is made between mandatory and voluntary internships.

The mandatory internship is a fixed component of the curriculum and can vary in length and timing depending on the degree programme or university - a duration of one to three months is common.

If you want to do a voluntary internship, you can determine the time frame yourself. We recommend a duration of at least two to three months so that you can get a realistic impression of a possible future job. A voluntary internship is a good idea if you have already gained some theoretical experience and acquired some specialized knowledge.
