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.
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. Complete the online feedback form (which is compulsory in order to receive credits for your work placement) and download the necessary Work Placement Agreement. Tips and links on how to search and apply for work placements will then be available to you on Moodle. The forum offers you the opportunity to share your experiences with other registered students and to receive advice on work placements. We would also appreciate your feedback if you have taken part in a voluntary work placement, a BA-Plus internship, or a work shadowing programme.
