Make the most of our services – and take the stress out of organising your internship

We provide you with support before, during and after your degree programme internship. Every year, we help between 500 and 600 students with the arrangements for their placements in Austria and abroad. In other words, we have plenty of experience.

Internship support for business students

All our degree programmes have one thing in common: they are designed with the requirements of industry in mind and have a strong practical focus. This means that you’ll gain your first work experience while still at university – during your compulsory internship.

When you’re looking for an internship place, we’ll be on hand to offer you advice and support. We’ll give you feedback on your written applications as well as interview tips. Our experts maintain contact with numerous companies in Austria and abroad that offer internship places. This is something that students find extremely beneficial as it makes finding a placement much easier.

We’ll also be there for you during and after your internship and always look forward to receiving the final internship reports from our students, who complete a diverse range of placements.

Practice placement support for students on our health sciences degree programmes

One thing’s for sure: the strong practical focus of our health sciences programmes means that you’re going to be spending a lot of time at different practice placement providers. But don’t worry, you’ll benefit from our extensive network of health sector partners when you’re looking for practice placement opportunities or when placements are being allocated.

During the course of your degree you’ll do practice placements in a range of specified areas. This will enable you to apply what you’ve learned in practice at an early stage. More and more of our students are opting to do a placement abroad – which is a fantastic experience.

We provide you with support before, during and after your practice placements.
