Work Placement Centre
„The best education for a
clever person is found in travel.“
Johann Wolfgang Goethe
The Work Placement Centre at the Institute for Translation and Interpreting helps students to find suitable work placements and provides them with information about potential career opportunities. Interdisciplinary work placement positions enable students to not only improve their language skills but also acquire valuable practical experience. Your compulsory internship, the one-week-internship and stays abroad according to module 18: comprehensive competences can be recognised in the Work Placement Center.
ATTENTION! Please only hand in your documents for the Work Placement Center via Moodle or in person during office hours.
The path to a successful work placement
The latest offers are regularly updated on the university's online job board, which students can access by entering their student ID and password.
The Work Placement Centre on Moodle
You can find the Work Placement Centre on the e-learning platform Moodle under "Praktika-Center". Please send us an email to request the password. We use Moodle to manage the processes for work placements and stays abroad. You can download the necessary internship agreements before the start of your internship and upload them again after filling them in. After having completed the compulsory internship or the one-week-internship, please complete the online questionnaire (mandatory for the compulsory internship). In addition, upload your certificates and reports (for the one-week-internship and stays abroad) to Moodle. You will also find information on potential work placements on Moodle and we provide you with reports from the one-week-internships as well as reports in which other students share their experiences from stays abroad.
