Internship

Your M.A. programme contains an internship/project module that you can carry out either in the semester break between your 2nd and 3rd or your 3rd and 4th semesters or, if it is longer than 3 months, during the semester. It is up to you to find a suitable position or project; of course, the advisors will support you in doing so if needed.

For more information, please click on the name of your M.A.programme below.

No internship placement

We have no internship board but you may find the following links useful when looking for an internship position:

  • The Bavarian State Ministry of Education, Science and the Arts and the Bavarian Industry Association run a joint website („Study & Work International – Aus Bayern in die Welt“) with internship ads for students of all Bavarian universities. 
  • Information by the International Office about funding opportunities for internships in Europe with ERASMUS+ and outside of Europe with PROMOS. (in German)
  • Links to search engines and placement agencies worldwide
    Please note: The information on this site is supplied without liability.

Leave of absence ('Urlaubssemester')

You do not have to take a leave of absence but often students choose to do so because it means that the semester when they are studying abroad or doing an internship, for example, will not be counted towards their total time of study.

To take a leave of absence, students are required to submit a form at the Registrar's Office, and, in case of an internship, some sort of proof such as a copy of the employment contract.

Taking a leave of absence for an internship is only possible if the duration of the internship stretches over at least half of the lecture period. You need to apply before the internship starts and, in addition, by December 15 at the latest for the winter semester / by June 15 at the latest for the summer semester.

It will not be possible to write any exams or seminar papers or register for anything in FlexNow during your leave of absence.
